I like George Caleb Bingham's 1854 painting "Stump Speaking" (full-size; *very* large) because it shows a wide range of men, both physically and in their stations in life. The crowd has gathered to listen to a local political candidate's speech. The term arose because the speakers would elevate themselves on a sawed-off tree stump so that the onlookers could see and hear them better. Below are some details of men from the crowd (click to enlarge.) The colors are a little different in the full versus smaller segments, because I shot the details myself directly from the painting in the St. Louis Art Museum.
