Notes:  Cezanne's influence on Fry is clearly evident. Fry, quoted by Watney: Since Cezanne [painting] has sought to express emotion, not so much by calling up in the spectator's mind the images of actual things, as by the revelation of such fundamental qualities of the visual world as volume, mass, and space.' (p. 135) The lack of color in our reprocution precludes confirmation that the simplified form at left is a haystack, but the landscape certainly evokes comparisons with Cezanne's scenery.

Citation:  Rosenthal, Michael. British landscape painting. Oxford: Phaidon, 1982, p. 41
Index Words:  haycocks, women, rakes, play
Place:  England
Notes:  The aristocratic Montagu family in the foreground rest during a game of lawn bowling. Beyond them men and women, only slightly less formally dressed, rake hay into cocks. The Montagues 'are positioned so that they can either prospect the view through a telescope, or just look out across the terraces with their haymakers (one of whom sleeps) towards the village itself. Haytley defines precisely that idea of haymaking as a motif, to be enjoyed on its own terms...' Rosenthal, p. 38.

Index Words:  haycocks, hayfield
Place:  England
Notes:  A cowherd and maid appear down the track to the left as exemplars of the amiable rustics the area produces, and in the nearer meadow is a busy scene of haymaking.This is an early example of what became a long-lived type of landscape painting a shift in taste towards straight landscape which is confirmed by two other paintings, both thought to have been done around 1720, both featuring haymaking, and both probably by native artists' (ID 2454, ID 2455)

Title of Work:  Hawking and haymaking
Date of Work:  c 1720
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  eighteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/2455.jpg
Citation:  Rosenthal, Michael. British landscape painting. Oxford: Phaidon, 1982, p. 29.
Index Words:  hayfield, haycocks, wagon, horse, dog, women, rake, sex
Place:  England
Notes:  Rosenthal, unimpressed by this work, describes it as 'incompetently painted' and 'very busy.' He notes the coexistence of play and work, 'which we should notice as approvingly as those mounted figures to whom the labourer is doffing his hat. There is a sense of light-heartedness, helped by the fact that not many people are actually labouring, and by an amorous scene [lower left] of a type which became standard in haymaking pieces...Haymaking meant that summer had come and with it relaxation and dalliance. In this painting it retains its time-honoured function as an indicator of the season while representing the happy society which the poets had come to think of as 'Britannia'.' [p.28]

Title of Work:  Landscape with haymakers

Citation:  Rosenthal, Michael. British landscape painting. Oxford: Phaidon, 1982, p. 31.
Index Words:  hayfield, haycocks, women, rake, sex
Place:  England
Notes:  According to Rosenthal 'haymaking iconography was persistent.' In this example, he notes Hogarth's embellishment of a hay painting by his friend George Lambert, by painting , center stage and highlit, an embracing couple on the closest heap, while others rake and fork behind them. Rosenthal compares this work with Gainsborough's 1755 landscape (ID 87).
