Paul Manship: Abraham Lincoln-The Hoosier Youth (sculpture)

This outdoor sculpture by Paul Manship was commissioned by an Indiana insurance company. The artist chose to portray Lincoln as a young man because he had spent 14 years of his youth in Indiana, but the earliest known photograph of Lincoln shows him at the age of 37. To achieve a good likeness, the artist toured the areas where Lincoln grew up, researched his family genealogy and made many studies.

Which study for this outdoor sculpture in the American Art Museum's collection was ultimately rejected by the artist?
