Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993.
Index Words:  wagon, horses, woman, women, rake, resting
Place:  England
Notes:  The composition has three imperfectly connected parts: to the left is a bulky load of softly golden hay on a rack wagon from which unhitched horses in harness lead across the foreground in the general direction of part two, a group of handsome young men and women relaxing in the lower right corner; in the background hayfield by a wood, small figures are apparently working. Christiana Payne notes the influence on Wheatley of French pastoral painters such as Bouche and Greuze who saw the 'countryside as a place of relaxation and flirtation' and she astutely discusses the association of haymaking with lovemaking: 'the work was lighter than at corn harvest, there was less danger of the crop being spoilt by such distractions and it was in any case less valuable. Couples [or, in this case, groups in the process of pairing off] often appear in depictions of haymaking, whereas at harvest time the presence of children as gleaners seems to have encouraged artists to concentrate on family groups instead.' (p. 81)

Citation:  Rosenthal, Michael. British landscape painting. Oxford: Phaidon, 1982, p. 89.
Index Words:  hayfield, haycock, wagon, women, rakes
Place:  England
Notes:  ^^^ Rosenthal's reproduction is monochromatic, but his description is colorful: '[Hearne's] delightful watercolour, entitled Summertime, washed in pale and subtle colours, features a swarm of pretty maidens and elegant swains effortlessly making hay, an extensive landscape stretching out behind them. In common with earlier versions of the subject, there is a sense of crowding and light-heartedness although, unlike, for example, Dixton's Haymaking, these figures never existed except in Hearne's imagination. Significantly, he is expecting this conventional georgic iconography to be understood (haymaking is even acting in the time-honoured way as indicator of season).' (p. 88)
