Image: Marsh at dawn
ID:  171
Artist:  Heade, Martin Johnson
Artist Birth Date:  1819
Artist Death Date:  1904

Title of Work:  Marsh at dawn
Date of Work:  1859
Medium:  oil

URL:  http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=14981
Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 63, p.29.
Index Words:  haystack, dawn
Place:  Rhode Island
Notes:  Several haystacks, similar in shape, diminish in size towards a flat horizon under clouds and a pink dawn sky reflected in the standing water of the marsh. This work might be termed the dawn of Heade's marsh hay-making, 'for which he became well known and which account for nearly a quarter of his surviving oeuvre...Although he experimented for several years with other landscape themes, it was the marsh that allowed him to express best his idiosyncratic vision of the American countryside.' [Stebbins, pp.28-29]

Index Words:  haystack

Notes:  As in many of Heade's flat marsh scenes, perspective is suggested by a sinuous river. There is small human figure in the foreground, increasing the monumentality of the single stack in the middle distance.

Citation:  not in Stebb
Index Words:  haystack, sunset
Place:  United States
Notes:  Recently for sale, absent from Stebbins, but unmistakably Heade's marsh format: about half as high as wide, equally divided between sky and flat scenery, a foreground haystack reflected in a tidal creek, others to suggest distance towards the just set sun, the rays of which, more apparent than in most of his works, briefly illuminate the undersides of scattered clouds.

Notes:  Elsewhere called 'Landscape composition -- marshes' and 'Sunset on Newbury marshes'. A foreground stack at the far right is balanced by a few trees on a low river terrace on the horizon. The size of the stack is implied by a small boat on the river at the same depth into the scene.

Title of Work:  Gathering hay before a thunderstorm
Date of Work:  1862
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  
Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 99.
Index Words:  haycocks, haycovers, haycart, wagon, haystack, storm, workers
Place:  United States
Notes:  Heade was famous not only for his hay scenes, but also for his depiction of changing weather and especially of threatening storms. But this dynamic, descriptive painting departs from the conventional Heade stillness: a figure has covered four of the nine waist high haycocks with white canvas (?) caps; others are loading a wagon; there is a haystack against dark trees under white clouds on the right horizon; to the left, dark clouds tower up to the top of the frame, but the meadow still gleams in the sunlight.
