Notes:  Wendel was one of a group of American artists who followed Claude Monet to Giverny in the 1880s. The primary subject of this painting is the meadow of flowers, but some of the elements in the background are present in Monet's work too: notably the poplars and row of small haycocks.

Index Words:  haystacks
Place:  France
Notes:  This overview of the village of Giverny was painted during a visit to Monet. The poplar-lined fields near the village may be the site of Monet's grainstacks. Some haystacks are visible among the roofs. The style is more reminiscent of Gauguin than of Monet.

Image: Haystack at Giverny, Normandy: sun dispelling morning mist
ID:  344
Artist:  Breck, John Leslie
Artist Birth Date:  1860
Artist Death Date:  1899
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Haystack at Giverny, Normandy: sun dispelling morning mist
Date of Work:  1891
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=11913
Citation:  
Index Words:  grainstacks
Place:  France
Notes:  Monet's meules series heavily influenced Breck's version of the same grainstacks: in their shape, in the angle of the light coming from behind them, and even in the low silhouetted building at left. but the color of the stack is more literal, the paint more thinly applied to creative a flat decorative effect. The Adelson Galleries, in describing another Breck Giverny painting (ID 345), quoted a long letter from William H. Gerdts who seemed to refer to this haystack painting and others: Breck 'painted a series of fifteen small views of haystacks, purportedly showing the same scene at different times of a single day, from morning light to moonlight, though, in fact, the project occupied three days; they were known collectively as Studies of an Autumn Day. Twelve of the fifteen are known today (Terra Foundation for the Arts), housed in the Musˇe Amˇricain, Giverny.'

Image: Grainstack, Giverny
ID:  345
Artist:  Breck, John Leslie
Artist Birth Date:  1860
Artist Death Date:  1899
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Grainstack, Giverny
Date of Work:  1891
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.adelsongalleries.com/sp98page1.htm
Citation:  Adelson Galleries, 1998.
Index Words:  grainstack
Place:  France
Notes:  In this other version, more accurately labeled, Breck's style is more impressionistic, but the overall effect is less abstract, thena the 'Haystacks' painting (ID 344). The Adelson Galleries quotes a letter from William H. Gerdts, who gives a useful context for this image. 'Many other early colonists such as [Lilla Cabot] Perry, [Theodore] Robinson, and Willard Metcalf, also painted landscapes in Giverny dominated by haystacks and grainstacks. The present picture by Breck of a grainstack is an independent rendering of the same motif, interpreted with considerably more color and livelier brushwork than Breck's fifteen-picture series, and much more descriptive of the local countryside, dotted with the homes of the local inhabitants and dominated in the background with the steep hills overlooking Giverny and the valley of the Seine.'

Image: Sloop on a marsh creek
ID:  346
Artist:  Bowlen, William Caldwell
Artist Birth Date:  1868
Artist Death Date:  1934
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Sloop on a marsh creek
Date of Work:  1891
Medium:  drawing
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/346.jpg
Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, p.169.
Index Words:  haystacks
Place:  Massachusetts
Notes:  Stebbins (p. 168-169) provides a detailed comparison between this chalk drawing by the Newburyport artist Bowlen and the more famous paintings by Martin Johnson Heade of the same marsh haystacks. This and other drawings once attributed to Heade 'make use of a one-point system of perspective, in which the haystacks and the banks of the river recede to a single vanishing point on the horizon' in contrast to Heade's more subtly dynamic suggestion of depth, which encourages the eye to move both into and across the picture.

Citation:  Stebbins, Theodore. The Life and Work of Martin Johnson Heade: A Critical Analysis and Catalogue Raisonne, p.167.
Index Words:  haystacks
Place:  Massachusetts
Notes:  Once attributed to Heade, but now recognized as much closer to the work of Bowlen (ID 346), this chalk drawing is closely analyzed by Stebbins in his Appendix on 'attribution and authenticity' in the work of Heade (pp. 167-168)

Image: Peasant woman and haystacks, Giverny

Title of Work:  Peasant woman and haystacks, Giverny
Date of Work:  1892
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://giverny.org/museums/american/colperm/index.htm
Citation:  Impressionist Giverny: A colony of artists, 1885-1915. Musee Americain de Giverny, and San Diego Museum of Art, 2007, p. 113.
Index Words:  harvest, stooks, woman, rake, mistake
Place:  France
Notes:  A more egregious example of false labeling than the common meules confusion, this painting by Dessar, one of several Americans who settled in Giverny in the 1880s and 1890s, the 'haystacks' are more likely 'stooks' (French 'desmoiselles') in a grain-field. Nevertheless, we include it in our hay database for the beautiful foreground figure of a woman with a rake on her shoulder.

Citation:  Eckert Fine Art Galleries, IN
Index Words:  haycocks, woman, rake, resting
Place:  France
Notes:  As with Dessar's falsely labeled 'haystacks' scene (ID 348), this lovely painting has a woman with a rake in the foreground, here seated in the shade with her tool on the ground. She is half-turned away from the observer towards some authentic haycocks in the right background.

Artist Birth Date:  1826/7
Artist Death Date:  1901
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Haygatherers
Date of Work:  1893
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  scan
Citation:  Patton, Sharon. African American Art. Oxford UP, 1998, p. 92. [color]
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, hayfield, workers, women, rake, race
Place:  United States
Notes:  Bannister, an African American, was strongly influenced by the French Barbizon school of landscapists and once had a studio in the same building with W. M. Hunt and J-F Millet. This composition and its paintwork reflects that influence, but the workers, loading hay on a horse-drawn wagon and women raking among the windrows, are evidently black. The hay on the field and the wagon is very finely rendered.
