Individual critical analyses of the paintings and an essay devoted to Belgian artist Constantin Meunier (1831-1904) are supplemented with four introductory texts tracing the variously realistic, allegorical and symbolic treatments of working-class themes represented in the show and discussing the involvement of the Catholic church in social reform, particularly as represented by Pope Leo XIII's 1891 encyclical Rerum Novarum.
