    Depictions of the Urban/Town Planner in Artwork

    Are there any that you know of? I have been looking everywhere and cannot find any.

    Seems our society doesn't value planners or planning very much. But that's not to say that hasn't been the case everywhere/always

    City planning has only been around since the days of the impressionist. Most art forms are relatively abstract since then, unless you count illustrators such as Rockwell.

    That being said, there may be some patronage works based upon Queen Nour who is an urban planner.

    Wow. Nice. These look like good candidates for a caption contest...
