Image: Summer Landscape
ID:  324

Artist Birth Date:  1820
Artist Death Date:  1863
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Summer Landscape
Date of Work:  1862
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.flogris.org/exhibitions/durrie_summerlandscape.html
Citation:  Florence Griswold Museum, Old Lyme, Connecticut
Index Words:  haystack, haybarn, hayfield
Place:  United States
Notes:  The Florence Griswold Museum, Old Lyme, Connecticut, which owns this work has a useful description of Durrie's Hudson River style. 'His idylls seemed faithful representations of 19th-century rural New England to many who saw Currier & Ives prints of his work. Some people must have known that he was painting a lovely myth, but only art critics seemed to mind.' Here, the frame is bisected by a group of tall trees; to the left is a farmstead, and to the far left a haystack, barn and empty hay cart. In the distance to the right of the painting is a sunlit hayfield.

Image: Medford marshes
ID:  325
Artist:  Brown, George Loring
Artist Birth Date:  1814
Artist Death Date:  1889
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Medford marshes
Date of Work:  1862-1863
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://128.11.41.128/artemis/fullrecord.asp?oid=33099&did=100
Citation:  Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Index Words:  haystack, haycart, wagon, workers
Place:  United States
Notes:  Without the excellent interactive zoom provided by the MFA, Boston, the hay content of this black and white reproduction would be hard to pick out. There is a low hay mound on a staddle, perhaps the beginning of a monumental stack a la Heade. To the right is a tiny group of wagon and workers in a marsh hay field. Sails of boats apparently plying the creeks are also evident.

Image: Gathering salt marsh hay
ID:  326
Artist:  Gerry, Samuel Lancaster
Artist Birth Date:  1813
Artist Death Date:  1891
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Gathering salt marsh hay
Date of Work:  1865-1875
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  scan
Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, p.126, and Connoisseur v170 (January 1969) p. lxvi.
Index Words:  haystacks, sunset
Place:  United States
Notes:  The influence of Heade is obvious, both in the subject matter and style, and it is fascinating to see the marsh haystacks in the hands of someone less obsessed by them. Gerry, according to Stebbins, 'never managed to suggest the rhythms of nature the way Heade had.' (p. 127)

Image: Plum Island River
ID:  327
Artist:  Thurlo, Frank
Artist Birth Date:  1838
Artist Death Date:  1913
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Plum Island River
Date of Work:  1865-1875
Medium:  watercolor
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  scan
Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, p.128.
Index Words:  haystacks
Place:  United States
Notes:  Thurlo's watercolor has many of the elements of a Heade marsh composition, including a sinuous creek and dozens of stacks receding in size to a flat horizon. But Thurlo's sailboat diminishes the importance of the stacks; whereas Heade's secondary elements always enhance them.

Notes:  ^^^ Hahn was trained in Dresden before moving to San Francisco where he shared a studio with William Keith in the 1870s. While in California, he painted genre scenes like this one: a white horse apparently pulling a man down a dusty country road, followed by two oxen pulling a hay wagon, with a low load ridden by another man. The painting was recently offered by the Edan Hughes Gallery for $22,000.

URL:  http://www.corbis.com/
Citation:  BE087838
Index Words:  haystack, haycap, dog, Florida
Place:  Florida
Notes:  A pole-centered haystack in a farmyard in Florida has the tatters of a protective cap. Perhaps its narrow shape, the length of the pole protruding, and the condition of the cap, all signify a reduced state, approaching the next haymaking season.
