John McClarey is an extraordinarily gifted sculptor who concentrates primarily on the form of Abraham Lincoln. The artist's fascination with Lincoln comes to life in several sculptures he created in his Decatur studio. His most recent work, a life-sized sculpture of Lincoln in bronze, was created on commission by the University of Illinois Library and the Gerda B. Morteson Center for International Library Programs, and now resides in the Russian State Library for Foreign Literature in Moscow. McClarey's sculptures can be found in a number of museums and private collections, including the Henry Horner Lincoln Collection of the Illinois State Historical Library and the Lincoln Home National Historic Site.
