Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 185 and p.120 [color].
Index Words:  haystacks, fog
Place:  United States
Notes:  ^^^ Seen at the newly opened De Young Museum in San Francisco, October, 1995. The reproduction in Stebbins gives the impression of an epic panorama, but the original painting is modest enough to share two-deep wall-space with another Heade. The monumental stacks are more crowded than usual. They seem to float on their staddles above the high water which carries a small boat occupied by two men. The stacks recede into the fog through which the sun gleams distantly.

Index Words:  haystacks, staddle
Place:  United States
Notes:  Staddle' has several meanings, at least two of which relate to this work: a stone or wood framework to support hay or cornstacks; a single tree left standing (perhaps the pole at the center of platform to the right of center of this piece is rooted into the marsh); and the mark left on the field when spoiled hay is removed (a related, metaphoric use: the scar left by smallpox!). For other staddles, see ID 223, 275, 277 Between the spectator and the cattle at left and the staddle is a dark pool. The large stack at right is in its own bright pool of light.

Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, cat. 200.
Index Words:  haystacks, storm
Place:  New Jersey
Notes:  The Smith College Museum which owns this work has a useful description of Heade's haystack series: 'Heade's banded compositions seem to laugh in the face of received aesthetic theory regarding the picturesque and the sublime. Among the only notable pictorial elements are the huge haystacks -- some in the nineteenth century rising to heights of twenty feet -- which kept the salt grasses elevated and dry as they awaited use as fodder and packing...Heade's compositional elements -- the clouds, the rutted ditches, the switchback canal and the succession of haystacks receding infinitely into the distance -- all induce a lateral rocking motionm a sweeping, panning vision that moves us naturally, not forcibly, through space.' The Smith College Museum of Art : European and American painting and sculpture, 1760-1960, New York, 2000, p. [?]
