Image: Landscape with haywain

Artist Birth Date:  1820

Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Landscape with haywain
Date of Work:  1861
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.clevelandart.org/explore/artistwork.asp?artistLetter=W&recNo=38&workRecNo=0
Citation:  Cleveland Museum of Art
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, harvest
Place:  New York
Notes:  A steep-sided river landscape is the backdrop to a haymaking or harvesting scene in the foreground. The shape of the wagon-load and the piles in the golden field suggest a grain harvest rather than haymaking, the title of the work notwithstanding. The green valley and the dramatic sky are characteristic of the Hudson River school. The Cleveland Museum of Art commentary provides a valuable historical context: 'Painted during the first year of the Civil War, this idyllic view of a farm near Dobb's Ferry, New York, proclaimed to Northern viewers the success of an agricultural system in which farmers worked their own land. The American flag hanging beside the homestead subtly alludes to the war. Such a scene was thus a critique of Southern slavery. Yet the beauty of the landscape, the wagon carrying a bountiful harvest of hay and the long afternoon shadows, also offers an optimistic image of harmony between man and nature.'
