Smithsonian to show Civil War artwork in D.C., N.Y.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Smithsonian American Art Museum has announced a major exhibit examining how artists represented the impact of the Civil War. It will be shown in Washington and New York.
"The Civil War and American Art" is under development and will go on view in November 2012. Four artists from the era will anchor the exhibition: Winslow Homer, Eastman Johnson, Frederic Church and Sanford Gifford. It will include about 60 paintings, along with photographs.
Museum Director Elizabeth Broun says it will show how visual arts were a cultural barometer of the nation's mood. The artworks follow the unease leading into the war, optimism that it could end quickly and the grim realization that reconciliation would be difficult.
In 2013, the exhibit will move to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
