Portrait of 25th American president William McKinley (1843-1901) by William Nicholson (1872-1949). The portrait was originally executed as a woodcut for the cover of American periodical 'Harper's Weekly', June 1901. However, after McKinley was assassinated by an anarchist in September 1901, the portrait was reissued as a lithograph priced 2s 6d by Heinemann, a week after the president's death.
