Image: George Washington at Mount Vernon during hay harvest
ID:  111
Artist:  Stearns, Junius Brutus
Artist Birth Date:  
Artist Death Date:  
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  George Washington at Mount Vernon during hay harvest
Date of Work:  1851
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.corbis.com/
Citation:  IH165335 and Vlach, John Michael. The planter's prospect: privilege and slavery in plantation paintings. Chapel Hill: UNC Press, 2002, p. 33.
Index Words:  wagon, horses, harvest, fork, sickle, rake, workers, African-american, resting, play
Place:  United States
Notes:  Although the Corbis caption describes this as a hay harvest scene, the wheat-colored standing crop, the sickles being used to cut it, and the sheaves on the ground and in the cart, all indicate grain of some kind. Nevertheless the picture is too full of interest to omit. The great man dressed in a blacksuit, is talking to a white overseer holding a rake; most of the other workers are dark-skinned males; a young woman serves them drinks from a bucket; nearby a white child braids flowers into the hair of his female playmate.

Notes:  While the title indicates that Turner's subject is primarily straw (actually sheaves being carried from a cart onto a large stack to the right), the zoom feature allowsus to discover hay in the foreground near the horses. The largethatched hay-barn is also worth noting.

Image: Haymaking near Warwick Castle
ID:  117
Artist:  Cox, David
Artist Birth Date:  1783
Artist Death Date:  1859
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Haymaking near Warwick Castle
Date of Work:  1810
Medium:  Watercolor
Period/Style:  Nineteenth Century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/117.jpg
Citation:  Connoisseur v193 (October 1976) p. 156.
Index Words:  wagon, horses, haycock, resting
Place:  England
Notes:  Haymaking in the meadows of the Avon, in the shadow of Warwick Castle, a few miles upstream from Stratford. The subtitle is the mid-day rest -- a common theme in hay paintings. Cox was praised by Ruskin as an artist whose 'pencil never falls but in dew..' In the words of the Connoisseur: 'The theme of the haycart as an indigenous part of English landscape belongs to him: he seems, almost, to have invented it. Yet the activity it represents is structural rather than decorative. The cart is always fully laden, a neat yellow block on the skyline. The horses make a chain of dark, active links between the cart and the neighboring passage. The figures, brightly touched in, animate the design with tiny gestures. [The Warwick Castle painting] is an anthology [of these themes].' Unfortunately, the reproduction is in black and white.

Image: Hayfield

Artist Birth Date:  1783
Artist Death Date:  1859
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Hayfield
Date of Work:  1833
Medium:  Watercolor
Period/Style:  Nineteenth Century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/119.jpg
Citation:  Bulletin, Rhode Island School of Design [date?] fig. 73.
Index Words:  haycart, haycock
Place:  England
Notes:  In Cox's middle period, his work reflected the influence of Constable -- 'building up a picture in bright colors with short, flickering brushtrokes...[that] achieved great results in rendering weather effects and atmosphere.' This work shows a marshy hay meadow, with a loaded cart on a low horizon under a threatening, cloudy sky.

Image: Going to the hayfield
ID:  120
Artist:  Cox, David
Artist Birth Date:  1783
Artist Death Date:  1859
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Going to the hayfield
Date of Work:  1852
Medium:  Oil
Period/Style:  Nineteenth Century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/120.jpg
Citation:  Connoisseur v84 (July 1929) p. 2. [col]
Index Words:  haycart, haycock, woman, women, weather
Place:  England
Notes:  According to the Connoisseur, this picture possesses an atmospheric quality and delicacy of colour unaffected by the woolly handling which mars many of Cox's more 'prentice efforts in the medium... It shows a man on a white horse and two women on foot carrying rakes, following empty wagons along a track towards a hayfield. There are a few haycocks in the field at left; towards the flat horizon a streak of sunshine suggest others; but the composition is dominated by a sky of darkly ominous clouds. This painting was seen in September 2006 in the Bath Gallery of Art.
