Regionalism: (1930 - 1945) The American Regionalism movement, also known as the American Scene Painters, began during the  Great Depression in the 1930’s. The movement is divided into two groups of artists with different  approaches. The Social Realists were devoted to depicting the social troubles of the suffering urban lower  class. The Regionalists painted more positive subjects, hoping to lead the nation out of the depression by  providing hope for a better future. This group often painted midwestern rural scenes with themes of hard  work and self-preservation.
