Place:  
Notes:  Nash's cylinders in a shorn field, inspired by the megaliths at Avebury, Wiltshire, might well be called 'Equivalents for the giant bales,' so vividly do they adumbrate the farm landscape of sixty years later.

URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/2435.jpg
Citation:  MacMillan, Duncan. Scottish Art, 1460-1990. Edinburgh: Mainstream, 1990, p. 12.
Index Words:  haystack, cap
Place:  Scotland
Notes:  Thistles are highly undesirable in the hayfield, miserably prickly to the haymaker. Were it not for the beautifully drawn capped haystack behind them they would be out of place in this database. But the thistle is also Scotland's emblem, and, according to MacMillan, the etching 'symbolizes the optimism of Scotland in the seventies...' p. 362.

Index Words:  haystack, women, horse, dog, wagon
Place:  Scotland
Notes:  One of Blackburn's cousins and a close friend was the physicist James Clerk-Maxwell. This ambitious composition crowds eleven people, nine of them female, on top of the haystack. The execution is precise, each figure sharply edged, as one might expect from an artist best known for her ornithological illustrations.

Index Words:  haystacks

Notes:  The panoramic spaciousness and the precision of detail are worthy of that great early hay painter Breughel. The number of stacks (27!), whether corn or hay, suggest that this rolling land is very productive.
