Title of Work:  
Date of Work:  1856
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:   http://www.hayinart.com/images/293.jpg
Citation:  Jasper Francis Cropsey: Artist and Architect.NY Hist Soc, 1987. plate 24. [color]
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, haycocks, workers, storm
Place:  New York
Notes:  At the center of the composition but not in the foreground, workers load hay onto a wagon from cocks in a riverside field. The commentary in the NY Historical Society monograph on Cropsey quaintly calls this activity 'bailing', a most unusual use (and spelling) of this term! The text is more precise in its summary of Cropsey's meteorology (which deserves to be compared to that of Heade): 'cirrus and cumulus clouds are usually associated with soothing and poetical thoughts... whereas the nimbus [awakens] the deepest emotions of gloom, dread, and fear.' At the upper left of this painting, nimbus clouds are moving in to hurry the haymakers in their work.

Artist Birth Date:  1825
Artist Death Date:  1894
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Hackensack meadows
Date of Work:  1859
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=8296
Citation:  
Index Words:  haystack, sunset
Place:  New Jersey
Notes:  Unlike Heade's sunsets, the light here is coming from behind the observer, and unlike Heade's architectonic haystacks, the ones in this Hudson River school painting are relegated to the distance, two conical stacks in the far right against the skyline trees.

Image: Peace and plenty
ID:  295
Artist:  Inness, George
Artist Birth Date:  1825
Artist Death Date:  1894
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Peace and plenty
Date of Work:  1865
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=20483
Citation:  Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY
Index Words:  harvest, sunset
Place:  United States
Notes:  The hay wagon in the middle distance is probably carrying sheaves -- these figure prominently in the foreground field, not yet stooked. The museum commentary emphasizes the post-bellum implications both in the title and in the serenity and prosperity of the scene. But the supine sheaves also, ironically, evoke the carnage of the terrible war between the states.

Citation:  
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, storm
Place:  New Hampshire
Notes:  The haying activity is central but tiny. Dominating the scene are the heavy clouds which press down threateningly on the background mountains which rise, implicitly vast, into this canopy.

Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://nmaa-ryder.si.edu/images/1909/1909.7.32_1b.jpg
Citation:  Bermingham, Peter. American art in the Barbizon mood. Washington, DC: Smithsonian Inst Press, 1975, p.66.
Index Words:  haystack, sunset
Place:  United States
Notes:  A decorative but oddly lit scene has a red sun near the far left horizon, but the details, including two left foreground trees and a central female figure, carrying, perhaps, an armful of hay, are apparently illuminated from behind the observer. The haystack is the largest element among a group of farm buildings on the right skyline.

Image: Snowy haystack
ID:  298

Artist Death Date:  1894
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Snowy haystack
Date of Work:  1889
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  [scan]
Citation:  Magazine Antiques v120 (December 1981) p.1323. [color]
Index Words:  haystack, snow, storm
Place:  United States
Notes:  This dark powerful work, with heavy shadows across the sky and much of the foreground, has at its center, a winter haystack, half-cut, capped by snow, and lit by a low sun. The face of the stack is bisected by a ladder and its shadow, evoking comparisons with the famous Talbot photograph made at Laycock, England, some forty years earlier.

URL:  http://www.tfaoi.com/am/2am/2am127.jpg
Citation:  
Index Words:  haystacks, harvest, workers
Place:  United States
Notes:  The content of the stacks in this famous painting of communitarian farming is ambiguous. The congregation of people of all ages along the brightly lit nave of corn-stalks is the main topic, but the background mounds may well be of hay.
