Image: Haystacks at the edge of woods
ID:  351
Artist:  Twachtman, John Henry
Artist Birth Date:  1853
Artist Death Date:  1902
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Haystacks at the edge of woods
Date of Work:  1895
Medium:  pastel
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=19158
Citation:  AMICO, Smithsonian Museum of American Art
Index Words:  haystacks
Place:  United States
Notes:  The uncut meadow in the foreground is a riot of impressionist flowers. By the woods in the background, behind a wooden fence are two poled haystacks lit from the left. 'Twachtman's anti-naturalist, anti-materialist, anti-positivist sympathies, his preference for what his student Eliot Clark called the elusive and fascinatingly evasive effects of nature and his love for nuance, were closely allied to symbolist allusiveness and indirection. Formally, his style resembles Paul Gauguin's synthetism flatness, decoration rather than depiction, painted surfaces rather than insistent pictorial illusions.' (Nicolai Cikovsky, Senior Curator at the National Gallery

Image: Harvesting the hay
ID:  352
Artist:  Bullard, Otis A
Artist Birth Date:  1816
Artist Death Date:  1853
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Harvesting the hay
Date of Work:  
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/352.jpg
Citation:  Magazine Antiques v96 (December 1969) p. 819.
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, fork, workers
Place:  United States
Notes:  The hay in this Bullard painting is realistically executed: every stalk on the fork and on the wagon is sharply etched in the black-and-white reproduction. The three male figures, somewhat reminiscent of those in Stubbs' hay scenes are equally well done, each active in a different phase of forking hay onto a horse-drawn wagon.

Place:  United States
Notes:  ^^^ One man is pitching hay from a wagon, drawn by two horses, up to a haystack level with his head. The brushwork is tidy but na•ve; the postures of the men forking the hay are well realized. Another figure to the left, watched attentively by a dog, is drinking from a jug.

Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Hay time -- western North Carolina
Date of Work:  
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/355.jpg
Citation:  Magazine Antiques v118 (November 1980) p. 855 [color]
Index Words:  fork, workers, hayfield, storm
Place:  United States
Notes:  This wonderfully theatrical painting is all dark clouds and gloomy shadows around the edges, but the mainstage, a hayfield, is a brilliant green, illuminated from a patch of blue and white sky above it. In this spotlight, seven men -- two on the horse-drawn wagon-load and five on the ground -- hurry to carry off the hay before the storm.

Artist Birth Date:  1841

Artist Country: American/British
Title of Work:  Snow scene
Date of Work:  1894
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.tate.org.uk/servlet/ViewWork?cgroupid=999999961&workid=4338&searchid=9162
Citation:  http://www.rehsgalleries.com/william_mark_fisher.htm
Index Words:  haystacks, snow
Place:  England
Notes:  The useful Rehs Gallery biography identifies those artists who influenced Fisher, notably Inness in Boston, and Sisley in Paris. Inadequately appreciated in either America or France he moved to England, where George Moore described him as 'England's greatest living landscape painter.' This example of his work is an impressionist study of a bare orchard in the snow; beyond the fence between orchard and farm buildings are a number of loaf-shaped, snow-capped haystacks.

Citation:  Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY
Index Words:  haystack, mistake
Place:  France
Notes:  The alternate title ('Gathering the grain') hints that the material being bottled or bundled is not hay. The Museum notes that Sargent is copying Millet. The rather formless (non-sheaf-like) shape of the bundle and the simple stack in the background are more hay-like than grain-like. In any case, the work of the young boy doing the bundling is wonderfully depicted.
