Index Words:  hayfield, workers, scythe, woman
Place:  United States
Notes:  The scythers in this painting were used in the Harpers engraving of the same year, but the original and its title told a different story -- a young woman stands where the children recline in the engraving, and the painted trees and sea become, in the graphic, a more enclosing foliage.

Index Words:  haystacks, children
Place:  United States
Notes:  The haystacks, in size, shape, and position, are very like those in 'Weaning the calf'. The one closer to the observer appears to be older; both are enclosed by fences.

Title of Work:  Weaning the calf
Date of Work:  1875
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.corbis.com/
Citation:  NC001836; Jennings, Kate F. Winslow Homer. North Dighton, Mass: World Publications, 2004, p. 41. Raleigh, North Carolina Museum of Art. Haltman, Kenneth. 'Antipastoralism in early Winslow Homer,' Art Bulletin v80, n1 (March, 1998), p.93.
Index Words:  haystacks, children, race
Place:  United States
Notes:  ^^^ Two large haystacks, although background to the main activity -- and African American youngster, watched by two other boys, tugging a grey calf away from a white cow -- are superbly painted. The closer of the two conical forms is evidently older (a similar color to the calf's) and unlike the fresher golden stack has been fenced against the livestock. Haltman's analysis of this painting, with compelling emphasis on the breast-like forms of the hay, occupies 5 pages of the article cited here.

Index Words:  hayfield, scythe
Place:  United States
Notes:  One of Homer's heroic farmers, scythe under his arm, knee-deep in future hay, looks up at a dawn(?) sky, either listening to the lark or assessing the weather.

Artist Birth Date:  1836
Artist Death Date:  1910
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Answering the horn
Date of Work:  1876
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century

Citation:  Conrads, Margaret C. Winslow Homer and the critics: forging a national art in the 1870s. Princeton UP, 2001, p.120.[color]
Index Words:  haystack, workers, scythe
Place:  United States
Notes:  Conrads unravels the mixed critical response to the enigmatic narrative of this painting. In our context, it is admirable for the sharp-edged, fore-shortened scythe, if not for the miniature haystack with figures on the right horizon.
