URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/2463.jpg
Citation:  Rosenthal, Michael. British landscape painting. Oxford: Phaidon, 1982, p. 128.
Index Words:  woman, rake, dog, love, children, play
Place:  England
Notes:  Several conventions are present in this painting: woman raking hay; her suitor about to embrace (or teach) her; dogs romping underfoot; and children playing in the windrow. The scene from Goldsmith's Vicar of Wakefield suggests, according to Rosenthal, a nostalgia for the simplicity of the eighteenth century. Mulready's subject is the clerical father's chariness of his daughter being courted. The hayfield had traditionally been the place for much boisterous intercourse between the sexes, but this iconography seems not to have been in Mulready's mind.' (p. 130)

URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/2465.jpg
Citation:  Rosenthal, Michael. British landscape painting. Oxford: Phaidon, 1982, p. 172.
Index Words:  hayfield, windrows, abstract
Place:  England
Notes:  Nash, in Rosenthal's analysis, 'has portrayed the lines of drying hay, the walls of the park, and its trees, the swell and slope of the landscape…There is a strong feeling of this landscape having been deserted; the farmer now visits and exploits it rather than working in it. The imagery of completed haymaking is one which has been illustrated several times through this book. Usually there is celebration and crowding -- recall the lines of mowers and rakers in the Dixton haymaking [ID 2454]. With Nash there is no longer any festive jollity. The pragmatic appoach means that once the hay is dry enough it will be baled and carted off, and the lack of figures is a way of pointing up the peculiar quality of this modern development of a time-honoured motif.'
