The following paintings were created between 1617 and 2003. Each painting is similar in that each artist uses a variety of rich colors to portray scenes that are directly related to agriculture. Each painting also is a landscape style with a foreground and deep background. I think that painters who enjoy and have a respect for agriculture often portray the things they enjoy about agriculture the most. This includes an appreciation of a variety of colors and textures, an appreciation for the land, an appreciation for livestock, and an appreciation for milk maids.
