Citation:  Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco Imagebase
Index Words:  haystack, mistake, grainstack, threshing, horses
Place:  New Mexico
Notes:  Why the herd of horses is galloping around the stack in the high poled corral is unclear, nor, indeed, whether the crude mound is of hay or straw. Without further documentation, we might infer that the horses are threshing grain from straw. The village at the right in the background seems to have ladders like those in a Southwestern pueblo. In 2006, the discovery of Moran's painting of the same subject (ID 5200), more precisly entitled Horses threshing wheat, San Juan, New Mexico confirmed this speculation.

Notes:  A farmer rides a horse-drawn mower that drops the hay behind it in neat swaths. 'The harness for this team of horses pulling a sickle-bar mower is accurately conceived. The strings hanging from the horsesŐ backs help keep the flies away (Flory & Fishburn interview).' (Spencer Museum)

Title of Work:  Hay harvest

Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century

Citation:  Art News v86 (May 1987) p. 25. [color] and Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, hayfield, mules, haycocks, workers, race, mistakes, rice
Place:  South Carolina
Notes:  No fewer than 23 African American field hands, can be counted in this scene of plantation hay farming. The stubble looks as straight-edged as straw, but the workers, men and women, are evidently engaged in building large haycocks and loading a large wagon, pulled by two mules. In the left distance at the end of a row of trees is apparently a factory with a tall, smoking chimney. After writing this annotation, I discovered the original work at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Unlike the title given in Art News the Ogden title is 'Rice Harvest' -- more plausible, alas, than the one first found. We'll leave it in the database, relegated to the 'mistakes' category.
