Image: Haymakers
ID:  1234
Artist:  Csok, Istvan
Artist Birth Date:  1865
Artist Death Date:  1961
Artist Country: Hungarian
Title of Work:  Haymakers
Date of Work:  c 1890
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hung-art.hu/tajkepek/szenagyu.jpg
Citation:  Weisber, Gabriel P. Beyond impressionism: the naturalist impulse. NY: Abrams, 1992, p. 173. Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest.
Index Words:  hayfield, windrow, workers, resting, haycocks
Place:  Hungary
Notes:  ^^^ Weisber notes the influence of Bastien-Lepage (ID 673) in his 'grouping of the peasants in the field and for the re-creation of the languorous atmosphere.' But the utter exhaustion of the girl in Bastien's more famous painting is replaced here by gentle relaxation, and the 'Transdanubian' costumes are more tidily ethnographic than in the French work. The texture of the windrow on which the girl is lying is very well depicted.

Index Words:  haystacks
Place:  England
Notes:  Seven stacks dominate the left half of the composition. Their content is uncertain, but the variety of their shape and size, and the unusually elaborate thatch which protects them from the weather suggest that some might be hay.

Image: Last load
ID:  1238
Artist:  Linnell, John
Artist Birth Date:  1792
Artist Death Date:  1882
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Last load
Date of Work:  1875
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/1238.jpg
Citation:  Crouan, Katharine. John Linnell: a centenary exhibition. Cambridge University Press, 1982, cat. 99, p. 107; and Barringer, Tim. Men at work: art and labour in Victorian Britain. Yale UP, 2005, p. 130.
Index Words:  wagon, storm
Place:  England
Notes:  The sky is almost as dramatic as that of Linnell's other 'Last load' painting (ID 1235); Crouard reads it as an approaching storm, and there is some urgency in the postures and expressions of the workers. Barringer interprets the scene as a wheat harvest, but the material on the wagon is ambiguous.

Image: Kington Borel
ID:  1240
Artist:  Tanner, Robin
Artist Birth Date:  1904
Artist Death Date:  1988
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Kington Borel
Date of Work:  1939
Medium:  etching
Period/Style:  twentieth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/1240.jpg
Citation:  Tanner, Heather and Robin. Wiltshire Village. London: Impact Books, 1987, cover and frontispiece.
Index Words:  haystack, architecture
Place:  England
Notes:  The Tanners carefully distinguish between the two thatched rick forms characteristic of Wiltshire. 'The hayrick is usually shaped like a house, with a plain ridged roof. The tops of the cornricks are conical, and the peaks are sometimes ornamented with a few twist of straw, or a poile of straw coils like a small bee skep, or a tuft of unthreshed ears or a straw bird.' Tanner and Tanner, p. 65. Robin Tanner's fine etching of a Wiltshire village at dusk is concerned mostly with the various roof-styles but also includes a haystack (upper left) and two conical cornricks (upper right).
