WASHINGTON (AP) - The Smithsonian American Art Museum is opening a new exhibition to showcase examples of modern realism from 20th century artists.

“Modern American Realism” opens Friday, featuring 70 paintings and sculpture spanning from 1910 to 1980. It draws on the works of the Sara Roby collection, which was given to the museum in 1986.

The show includes works by Will Barnet, Isabel Bishop, Paul Cadmus, Arthur Dove, Nancy Grossman, Edward Hopper, Wolf Kahn, Yasuo Kuniyoshi and Jacob Lawrence, among others.

Curators say some of the museum’s most beloved paintings are part of this exhibit, including “Cape Cod Morning” by Edward Hopper and “Night in Bologna” by Paul Cadmus.
