Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.126-127 and plate 22. [color].
Index Words:  hayfield, workers, scythe, mowing
Place:  England
Notes:  This vigorous haymaking scene in a golden yellow meadow dotted with flowers has two workers in the foreground wielding their scythes and another with scythe on his shoulder walking away from the observer. The cut grass falling over the blade is particularly well done. Christiana Payne alerts us to the influence of French painters from Millet to Monet. Clausen 'is concerned less with authentic detail than with the nobility of rural labour and the beauty of sunlight... She argues less convincingly that the scene is anachronistic: 'by the 1890s meadows would normally be cut mechanically, and the scythe would be used only to open up a field by cutting around a headland.' Small farmers, half-a-century later, were still using scythes in fields too small for machines. As she points out, Clausen wanted to be accurate: 'in a letter to the Magazine of Art in 1902 (p.279) he enclosed a diagram to show how the mower on the right was at the beginning of a stroke, the mower on the left at the end.'

Citation:  Thompson, Flora. Illustrated Lark Rise to Candleford. London, Century, 1983, title page.
Index Words:  haystack, haycart, wagon, workers, fork
Place:  England
Notes:  The composition, style and content is very like that in Clausen's 'Sunlight and Shadow,' but here the busy hens are literally overshadowed by the work of building the rick. A man forks hay from a half empty wagon to two others arranging the hay on a growing rick. Another finished conical stack rises in sunlight in the background.

Citation:  
Index Words:  haystack
Place:  England
Notes:  The Tate biography of Clausen identifies the work of Lhermitte and Bastien-Lepage (especially the Hay Gatherers, ID 673) as important influences in his phase of rustic naturalism. The tradition goes back to Millet as does the earthy stoicism of this work -- a man digging in frozen ground with a frost-covered haystack in the background.
