Citation:  Vlach, John Michael. The planter's prospect: privilege and slavery in plantation paintings. Chapel Hill: UNC Press, 2002, p. 163
Index Words:  rice-fields, race
Place:  South Carolina
Notes:  Chapter 7 of Vlach's monograph is devoted to Smith's lovingly documented rice plantation series. The rice appears to have been gathered loosely rather than in sheaves, and so its appearance -- in field heaps, in boats, and in stacks -- closely resembles its northern equivalent, hay. Smith 'created a set of pleasant images in which the cruelty and violence that undergirded so much of the plantation system were visually neutralized.' [p.175]

Index Words:  rice-stacks, race

Notes:  Smith's nostalgia for the pre-bellum south of her plantation-owning ancestors is no more evident than in this image. She rendered 'chattel slavery not merely as a tolerable system but as a benign institution.' [p.174]

Citation:  Rewald, John. The paintings of Paul Cezanne: a catalogue raisonne. NY: Abrams, 1996, cat no 602.
Index Words:  haystack, architecture
Place:  France
Notes:  One of only two Cezanne paintings which appear to depict hay. The rounded forms at the left of the group of buildings appear to be stacks. Maureen McCormick, curator at the Princeton Museum, kindly sent the following description: 'with the disclaimer that color judgment is highly subjective, I would describe the color of the two mounded forms to the left of the house to be a medium to dark ochre (in other words, quite warm in tone). If by your query you are asking if these two forms *could* be haystacks, I would say possibly; they certainly suggest haystacks to me. However, the same color is used elsewhere in the painting -- there are passages on the mountains in the background and on the faŤade of the building for example.'
