Image: Haymakers at dinner
ID:  401
Artist:  Uwins, Thomas
Artist Birth Date:  1782
Artist Death Date:  1857
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Haymakers at dinner
Date of Work:  1812
Medium:  watercolor
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/401.jpg
Citation:  Payne, Christiana. Toil and plenty; images of agricultural landscape in England, 1780-1890.Yale UP, 1993, p.152-153, plate 27 [color]
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, workers, resting, woman, rake
Place:  England
Notes:  As in Uwin's ID 400, the principal character is a man leaning on a pitchfork, but the two figures are far apart in social class. In this large, complex painting, the man standing at left has a fine hat and boots, a fine horse nearby, and the fork is more like a spear than a support. Nevertheless, he does wear a smock which suggests that he has been working with his laborers. The empty wagon at far right evokes Rubens, but the painting is, in Payne's words, 'a curious mixture of artistic influences and direct observation... the old couple on the right are convincing, but the couple in the center look like the 'drawing room rustics' of Francis Wheatley, and the woman leaning on her rake and the man drinking from the barrel are probably derived from paintings or prints by James Ward.' (p. 153)

Index Words:  haystack, haycart, wagon, workers
Place:  England
Notes:  A boy holds two horses hitched to a wagon still containing some hay an a man with a fork. On the nearby rick one man waits the next forkful while two others behind him arrange the course. Two props and a ladder lean against the stack. Payne observes that the foreground details -- sticks, hurdles, rake, barrow, fowl and pigs -- suggest 'a return to the aesthetics of the picturesque.'

Image: Labour
ID:  405
Artist:  Radclyffe, Edward
Artist Birth Date:  1810
Artist Death Date:  1863
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Labour
Date of Work:  1870
Medium:  engraving
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.artoftheprint.com/artistpages/radclyffe_edward_labour.htm
Citation:  
Index Words:  hayfield, haystack, windrows, tedding, love, rake
Place:  England
Notes:  This mixed method engraving done from a painting by John Absolon (1815-1895) depicts several well-dressed ladies in a hayfield. The two in the foreground are chatting with a handsome man; those in the background are tossing hay high in the air, probably 'tedding' it to help it dry. Roughly a dozen figures leads back into the composition towards a large haystack under construction. To the left, another couple are engaged in something other than 'Labour'. This is a companion piece to ID 406 'Rest'.

Image: Rest
ID:  406
Artist:  Radclyffe, Edward
Artist Birth Date:  1810
Artist Death Date:  1863
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Rest
Date of Work:  1870
Medium:  engraving
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:   http://www.artoftheprint.com/artistpages/radclyffe_edward_rest.htm
Citation:  
Index Words:  harvest, stooks, workers, resting, mistake
Place:  England
Notes:  Although the 'Art of the Print' commentary implies that this companion piece to ID 405 is also set in a hay-field, it is obviously a grain harvest scene. The bare arms and low cut dresses of the women would be less appropriate for bundling sheaves and building stooks than for the relaxed flirtation in which they seem to be engaged. Radclyffe completed both works just before his death in 1863. They were first published seven years later.

Citation:  
Index Words:  hay-barge
Place:  Netherlands
Notes:  Several boats stand under half-sail in a broad river or estuary. The one which most interests the artist, and us, has a large, golden load of hay under white sails, a warm detail in an otherwise cool blue scene.

Notes:  By a small cottage in Twickenham, a Middlesex village subsequently absorbed by Greater London, a horse-drawn, two-wheeled cart is about to be loaded from haycocks. One man rides in the cart, another carries a fork nearby, and a woman in a bonnet with a rake is perfectly framed by the large cartwheel.

Notes:  The upper of two rapid pencil sketches shows three loaded hay wagons, or perhaps the same wagon from different angles.
