Rushmore by Moonlight" by Paul McGehee. Located in the Black Hills of
South Dakota, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial was sculpted over
several years in tribute to four of our greatest Presidents on the
rocky face of the mountain known as the Six Grandfathers. Sculptor
Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, carved the likenesses of
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham
Lincoln between the years of 1927 to 1941. Gutzon died in 1941 and his
son took over the project, which was originally to depict the figures
from the waist up, but due to lack of funding the project was completed
as four busts in October, 1941. Mount Rushmore today is South Dakota's
top tourist attraction.
"Mount Rushmore by Moonlight" is faithfully
reproduced as an archival-quality print from McGehee's original color
