From Text Panel:

Born in Mountain, North Dakota, Thorarin Snowfield studied in New York City at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design, and then in Minnesota at the Minneapolis Art School. During the Great Depression, he painted the work on display for a federally funded program.

Snowfield's painting shows a farm crew taking a lunch break. Behind them is an old fashion threshing machine that was run off a steam engine (not visible in the picture). The horse is still in use here pulling a wagon with grain to unload in the thresher.

Condition

Good, paint is cracking
