Dueling Visions of Liberty: Depictions of the American Civil War presents the diverse political, regional, and racial viewpoints expressed during the American Civil War through art. The exhibit will feature a variety of artistic medium including contemporary paintings, lithographs from news journals, sculptures, photographs, and other period artifacts to represent the viewpoints of those who fought, stayed behind to defend their homes, and those that were neutral witnesses to the conflict.
This selection of works from AMoA's permanent collection represents the later years of Theo Tobiasse's prolific and innovative career. As a teenager living in Paris, Tobiasse and his family were forced into hiding during the city's Nazi occupation from 1942 - 1944. Tobiasse’s work -- influenced by surrealism, expressionism and modern primitivism -- explores themes of mythology, biblical stories, exile and his own past. All of these elements combined to present rich metaphors for the 20th century.
