Art is a product of a world view. The same can be said of art appreciation. As the world changes, so does our view of the world. Art contests are a good example of this. Vote For Me was a recent FAA art contest that contained portraits which provoked emotion in the viewer. The overwhelming winner was a portrait of Abraham Lincoln titled “Lincoln’s Tear” by Cindy Anderson. If this contest were held 150 years ago, this portrait might have been laughed at. During the Civil War, Lincoln was not unanimously favored, especially by southerners and those who did business with the South. We need not be remembered that he was assassinated. Today, only the uneducated would question Lincoln’s resolve to save the Union. If there wasn’t a Civil War, there surely would have been a war between the United and Confederate States of America that might have ended differently, if the South had a few decades to fortify its independence.
