Index Words:  haystacks, storm
Place:  Massachusetts
Notes:  ^^^ Stebbins (p.237: cat. 143- 146) has a quartet of images which strongly resemble each other. Each has a meandering creek reflecting a large, dark foreground stack, highlit stacks in the background, a ragged line of dark clouds, parallel to the flat horizon, to which they are connected across a lumnous sky by dark rainstreaks. Seen together, they are like frames in a cinemascope documentary on dynamic coastal weather.

Notes:  ^^^ To the right of a serpentine creek, well lit in spite of the dark curtain along the top of the frame, stands a fisherman, identical in position and pose to the one in ID 269. He and the large stack behind him on the right are in dark shadow. On the other bank is an unusual rock formation shaped like a house. In the center is a tiny, distant wagon near two more round stacks.

Title of Work:  Sudden shower, Newbury marshes
Date of Work:  1866-1876
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.tate.org.uk/britain/exhibitions/americansublime/room6b.htm
Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 146.
Index Words:  haystacks, storm
Place:  Massachusetts
Notes:  One of Heade's contributions to the grand American Sublime exhibition which toured in 2002. (The other was the more famous 1859 sea-shore painting Approaching Thunder Storm.) This was the first of Heade's hay images to come to my attention. Little did I know that there would be over one hundred more. The Tate description of this work is worth quoting in its entirety: 'The weather plays an important role in Heade's paintings of the salt marshes of the New England coast. The land seems permanent, unchanging in its purpose and appearance, while the sky is constantly altered. This provides a chronological dimension that reminds us that, in fact, even the land suffers change, and that the apparently eternal haystacks will disappear under the impact of new ways of life and farming technology. Here the interplay of sun and shower is mirrored in the strong contrasts of light and shade across the marsh, so that one foreground haystack is in deep shadow while distant ones are bathed in sunshine.'

Artist Birth Date:  1819

Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Marshfield meadows, Massachusetts
Date of Work:  1866-1876
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/196.jpg
Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 147 and p. 124 [color].
Index Words:  haystacks, storm
Place:  Massachusetts
Notes:  ^^^ The color reproduction in Stebbins is sharp enough to show not just the usual Heade passages of light and shadow,and sun and storm, but unusual detail, such as the poles which hold the tops of the stacks together and a rare horizon line of waves breaking on a beach. See Stebbins (p.124) for commentary on Heade's modification of the actual topography and the political (conservationist) implications of his changes.

Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 149.
Index Words:  haystacks
Place:  Massachusetts
Notes:  ^^^ The background sky is dark and threatening, but the largest stack, just left of center glows from an unusually frontal light which is also reflected in the shadowy meander in the foreground. The Butler Institute description captures the scene in prose as melodramatic as Heade's illumination: 'the black mirror reflection in the middle of the composition...increases our sense of an almost surreal world held in a tension of oppositions about to shatter in noise and light. Where Heade's marshes before and after this period were painted in cool greens and yellows, and either bright sparkling daylight or dreamy twilights, here he purposefully exploits impenetrable blacks, acid greens, and ghostly whites.' [John Wilmerding]

Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 151.
Index Words:  hay-shed
Place:  Massachusetts
Notes:  A particularly low flood plain, beside which the confining terraces are less prominent, has a collapsed Dutch-style shed, left of center, and a cow in the lower left. The sky is almost clear. This modest little painting was dwarfed by the Bierstadts and Coles when it travelled with them (for counterpoint and contrast) as part of the Wadsworth Atheneum's exhibit on the Hudson River School, to which Heade has often been erroneously assigned.
