Chrysler Museum of Art: American Art of the 18th & 19th Centuries

The next galleries feature American works from the century that defined us as a nation, a century cut in half by our Civil War, and the paintings say so much about our hopes, our desires and our optimism in spite of the pain we inflicted upon ourselves. There's a lot of today in these paintings, too.

"Still Life" by Werner Hunzinger, 1850
"Waiting for William" by John George Brown, 1879
"Dem Was Good Ole Times" by Thomas Hovenden, 1882
