Index Words:  rake, children, woman
Place:  United States
Notes:  A girl with rake on her shoulder walks through a dappled field. Although the quick strokes of watercolor enhance this summery effect, they are also precise enough to depict clearly the the curved frame on the rake handle. Haltman discovers the following symbolism: 'linking hay specifically to a woman's breasts by means of contiguity.' 'Homer's use of the motif appears inspired by painitngs in the Barbizon tradition that show haystacks figured in the Barbizon tradtion that shows haystacks figured in the fashion popular in the Ile-de-France, in softley swelling rounded heaps, giving visual expression to the French romantic commonplace le sein de la terre, or bosom of the earth, equating human industry with natural fecundity.'

Index Words:  haystack, moon
Place:  United States
Notes:  This wood engraving of the 1889 painting in the Freer (ID 319) accentuates the texture in the stack and the shadow beneath its overhang. The engraver was initially defeated by what he called the 'tonal atmospheric harmony' of the Tryon work, but his eventual success helped make the Rising Moon Tryon's most famous work. Merrill, p.106.
