Index Words:  hayfield, scythe
Place:  New York
Notes:  ^^^ A serene composition, in which a gently smiling farmer, standing in a half-cut hay meadow sharpens his scythe. His balanced pose is is reinforced by the curving diagonal of the blade and the gentle arc of the handle. In the background, perfectly bisecting the frame is Long Island Sound and the low Connecticut shore beyond. The still standing, flowery meadow grass is particularly well done.

Index Words:  workers, woman, women, dog, fork, rake, resting
Place:  England
Notes:  ^^^ About a dozen lively, water-colored pencil sketches of figures at various scales, about half of them female, in authentically practical clothing. Note that the men are using rakes, and the women forks, in contrast to most of our other images. The cheerful figure in the center is evidently resting in the hay with his dog. The objects at the upper left are oxen yokes.

Period/Style:  nineteenth century

Citation:  
Index Words:  hay-bundle, haycocks, wagon, lovers, sex, women, rakes
Place:  England
Notes:  The workers have laid down their tools (fork and rake) and are now laying down each other. The foreground is a ribald group writhing and romping together on green hay -- two couples embracing, and two other girls throwing or about to throw bundles of green hay on top of them. In the background more conventional haymaking is being done: a woman with a rake and other figures loading a haycart. A lovely and lively water-colored engraving, blushing pink in all the right places. Use the ImageBase zoom to discover the delightful details.

Image: Hayfield near East Bergholt at sunset
ID:  140
Artist:  Constable, John
Artist Birth Date:  1776
Artist Death Date:  1837
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Hayfield near East Bergholt at sunset
Date of Work:  1812
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/database/art.asp?aid=782&page=3
Citation:  Reynolds, Graham. Constable’s England. NY MMA, 1983. [color]
Index Words:  haycocks
Place:  England
Notes:  One of several Constable sunset scenes at East Bergholt, this rapid oil sketch shows a field of haycocks back-lit by a brilliant red sky. There may also be some hay in the 1815 East Bergholt Rectory sunset landscape in the Philadelphia Museum, but the rapid brushstrokes preclude a confident hay sighting.
