These works are a subset of what you see in Nature. The difference is they will include figures or humans in some sort of activity of life. What is fun with works like these is to allow yourself to become immersed in understanding what story the artist is trying to tell, or what they feel about the people or scene they have created.
There is not necessarily one right answer to this as well.
Very often the artist won't know exactly why they painted something the way they did.
And sometimes the opposite is true.
