Image: Haymakers' repast: a scene in Wales
ID:  391
Artist:  Linnell, John
Artist Birth Date:  1792
Artist Death Date:  1882
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Haymakers' repast: a scene in Wales
Date of Work:  1815
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century

Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.93. Barringer, Tim. Men at work: art and labour in Victorian Britain. Yale UP, 2005, p. 127.
Index Words:  hayfield, workers, resting
Place:  Wales
Notes:  Payne notes that this oil painting was based on a watercolor done during Linnell's trip to Wales two years earlier. But the earlier sketch included only the field and its workers making haycocks; the foreground figures, one lying as flat as the rake beside him, another carrying a pot on her head, others sitting in a row, like the one in ID 388, were all added later. (p.93) Barringer notes that rural labourers here are portrayed as individuals with closely observed facial features, dress and posture and that at least thirteen people are shown working in a small field. The modern style rakes also reflect Linnell's documentary (as opposed to picturesque) approach. (p. 121)

Citation:  Reynolds, Graham. Victorian Painting p.136
Index Words:  hayfield, haycocks, women, rake, moon
Place:  England
Notes:  Three women dressed in elegant clothes, which hang with classical folds down to the tightly manicured grass, stand in a hayfield by a white-walled cottage. The one on the left holds sleeping child is close to a row of improbably tidy haycocks. The two on the right hold tools, one shouldering a rake the other holding a handle. To their right is another cock and a bench or desk over which is draped another cloak. The field and its occupants are all sharply lit, and yet a full moon rises beyond the distant trees. The anti-realism is serenely deliberate.

Title of Work:  Haymaking, study from nature, in Osney Meadow, near Oxford, looking towards Iffley.
Date of Work:  1853-1854
Medium:  watercolor
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/394.jpg
Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.167 and plate 30 [color].
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, hayfield, windrows
Place:  England
Notes:  The topography of this landscape is completely flat, and stretches into the distance uninterrupted by fence or hedge, but as in the works of Heade, it is given depth and vitality by the activity of haymaking. Unlike Heade, William Turner shows no stacks of diminishing size, but the texture of the heaped windrows, laps up towards the observer like waves on a lake, on which dozens of tiny figures float away from the mounted man in the foreground into the far distance.

Title of Work:  Farm buildings with stack makers
Date of Work:  1805
Medium:  drawing
Period/Style:  nineteenth century

Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.136-137.
Index Words:  harvest, stacks, architecture
Place:  England
Notes:  As Payne, points out the ricks, thatched and unthatched, are made up of sheaves not hay. But they are so carefully drawn and so harmoniously integrated into the group of buildings that the relatively minor hay stack under one of the sheds justifies the inclusion of this fine pencil sketch.

Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.108 (bw).
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, hayfield, workers, wind, dog
Place:  England
Notes:  Similar in composition and content to Cox's 1852 painting with the same title, this work also relegates the haymaking to the background, with foreground figures riding and walking away from the observer along a rough track. In this example, there are two horses, but the woman still walks behind the male rider; the sky is cloudy but lighter; the wind is even more obvious in the bending of the sapling at right, the uncut grass by the road, the horses tails, the tugged clothing, and the birds sailing overhead. Payne quotes Cox himself: ' I want to show a proper hay-making day, bright and sunny , of course, but with a brisk, drying wind seeping across the fields, and making the fleecy clouds speed along at a greater pace...'

Image: Haymaking

Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Haymaking
Date of Work:  1792
Medium:  watercolor
Period/Style:  eighteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/397.jpg
Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.130-131.
Index Words:  sledge, hayfield, women rake, transport, Wales
Place:  Wales
Notes:  Payne, ever alert to the nuance of dress, notes that the women rakers are probably Welsh and certainly elegantly attired, and furthermore that their poses, front and back to the observer, show off their entire outfits. As to their work, she reminds us that raking 'was a relatively light occupation, one that could be indulged in by members [especially ladies] of the wealthier classes who wanted to play at farm work.' (p.131) The hay-moving vehicles are more characteristically regional than the costumes, horse-drawn sledges being more practical than wagons in these mountainous regions. A smaller version of the sledge, the hay sweep, was used in England, as late as the 1950s to pile up windrows into cockable heaps.

Image: Harvesters resting in a cornfield
ID:  398

Artist Birth Date:  1756
Artist Death Date:  1827
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Harvesters resting in a cornfield
Date of Work:  
Medium:  watercolor
Period/Style:  eighteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/398.jpg
Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.132-133.
Index Words:  harvest, workers, resting
Place:  England
Notes:  Another harvest scene which, by its title alone, should be disqualified from our collection contains too much of interest to omit. The hooded stooks look very like haycocks; the smooth texture of the field seems more like hayed ground than stubble; and the stacks in the valley among the socially stratified buildings -- mansion, farmhouse and cottage -- look more like loaf-shaped hay than thatched corn-rick. But, as Payne observes, ' Rowlandson evidently has little interest in accurate agricultural detail: the tool shown in the right foreground is a strange cross between a sickle and a scythe...' (p. 133)

Index Words:  haycart, wagon, hayfield, windrows

Notes:  Windrows curve up from a river to large wagon being loaded with hay. The outlines of five horses to the left of the wagon do not mean that they are all currently hitched to it.
