Industrial Landscapes...the Grohmann Museum has them in abundance!
Many art museums we visit, I find industrial, railroad, factory or work-themed paintings are not common. Lots of pretty landscapes, lovely ladies, sweet children, flowers, hunt scenes, etc.; but not much to illustrate the ways and means that most people go about the task of making their living. Also, the kind of scene we see above, is very near to abstract or modernistic, if you simple look at the shapes, patterns and lines. I like to photograph scenes like this for the same reason.
