A new exhibit at the Chrysler Museum of Art celebrates European and American rural workers and a return to nature.

“The Agrarian Ideal” features works by European impressionists Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh, as well as American landscape painter Winslow Homer.

The works largely depict French and American farm workers and peasants in the 1880s and 90s. They showcase the artist’s varying responses to war and oppression, and their searches for truth, said Chrysler Museum of Art Chief Curator Lloyd DeWitt.
