This chapter discusses several artists who dabble in agrarian art. The discussion makes an attempt to determine why paintings of rural terrain are considered unusual and why they are sometimes called pictures of protest. It is difficult for rural people to think of these paintings as a form of protest because these paintings usually depict rural terrain, which is commonplace to them. The chapter further states that the importance of local and amateur art needs more emphasis in discussions of how the artistic impulse and the agrarian impulse join hands.

Keywords:   agrarian art, rural terrain, paintings, pictures of protest, local and amateur art, artistic impulse, agrarian impulse
