Image: Haymaking
ID:  421
Artist:  Cole, George Vicat
Artist Birth Date:  1833
Artist Death Date:  1893
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Haymaking
Date of Work:  
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/421.jpg
Citation:  
Index Words:  haycart, wagon
Place:  England
Notes:  According to Christiana Payne, Cole 'painted entire agricultural landscapes on the spot, working from a hut.' She quotes a contemporary biographer who claimed that farmers 'would leave in the field patches of corn uncut, stooks uncarted, and waggons ready-loaded, until the artist had finished what he wanted of them.' (p.61) Each of the Cole images in our database reflects this authenticity of the detail, undermined by the artificiality of the whole. (cf., ID 422, ID 423)

Image: Haymaking

Artist:  Cole, George Vicat
Artist Birth Date:  1833
Artist Death Date:  1893
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Haymaking
Date of Work:  
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/422.jpg
Citation:  Wood, Christopher. Victorian painting. Boston: Little, Brown, 1999, p. 292.
Index Words:  hayfield, haycocks, windrow, workers, scythe, mowing
Place:  England
Notes:  This outstanding representation of several phases of traditional haymaking is compressed, perhaps, for the convenience of the artist, who illustrates: a flowery uncut meadowup to the waists of the two men who are scything into it; a windrow; several haycocks; and in the background amid the trees a tidy haystack. Beyond the woodland the country opens into a broad blue valley.

Image: By the haystack
ID:  423
Artist:  Cole, George Vicat
Artist Birth Date:  1833
Artist Death Date:  1893
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  By the haystack
Date of Work:  
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/423.jpg
Citation:  Thompson, Flora. The Illustrated Still Glides the Stream. London, 1984, p.30.
Index Words:  haycart, wagon, haystack, children
Place:  England
Notes:  ^^^ As with Cole's other work (ID 421, ID 422), this painting is meticulously authentic in its details, and highly improbable in its juxtapositions. Half-cut, the haystack has a mid-winter shape, enough fodder remaining to get the animals through to Spring, but the light and the loaded wagon in background are bright and summery. The children at the bottom of the ladder seem to be looking for hen's eggs.

Index Words:  haycocks, women, resting
Place:  England
Notes:  ^^^ A charming if sentimental painting shows three generations of women resting next to a haycock under a bright midday sun.

The hay and the foliage behind are brilliantly rendered.
