This painting by Nicholas Vachel Lindsay (1879-1931), entitled "The Wedding of the Rose and the Lotus" was a companion piece to one of Lindsay's poems. Lindsay recited the poem in 1915 for President Woodrow Wilson's Cabinet to commemorate the opening of the Panama Canal. Lindsay won acceptance and appreciation through his writing and performances and blazed the way for a new period in American poetry. Lindsay was born and died in his Springfield home which is located next door to the Governor's Mansion at the corner of Fifth and Edwards. The home originally occupied by Ann Smith, sister of Mary Todd Lincoln, is owned and maintained by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.

this reproduction was donated and produced by Ace Sign Co. October 8, 1997, in cooperation with Portraiture by Morgan and Downtown Springfield Inc.
