Citation:  Impressionists in winter: effets de neige. Washington, DC: Phillips Collection, 1998
Index Words:  fodder, winter
Place:  France
Notes:  Several Impressionists tried to capture the elusive 'effets de neige' the flickering reflective effects of snow on winter landscapes, both urban and rural. This Pissarro painting, now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, shows a farmer, followed by a sheep, carrying a bundle of hay into a snow-covered farmyard. Austere whites dominate the composition, but there is warmth in the stone walls of the farm buildings, in the sheep's fleece, and especially in the hay, a minor evocation of summer. The invaluable Athenaeum website dates the work at 1874. The 1998 exhibition catalogue dates it at 1876. See ID 533 for another snow painting from the latter exhibit.

Citation:  Impressionists in winter: effets de neige. Washington, DC: Phillips Collection, 1998
Index Words:  haystacks, winter
Place:  France
Notes:  In this snow scene, the content of the low stacks is ambiguous, perhaps either hay for winter fodder or manure to be spread as fertilizer when the fields soften.

Image: Haystack
ID:  534
Artist:  Sisley, Alfred
Artist Birth Date:  1839
Artist Death Date:  1899
Artist Country: French
Title of Work:  Haystack
Date of Work:  1877
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=950
Citation:  
Index Words:  haystack
Place:  France
Notes:  Rather than explore the reflectivity and color of the haystack, as most of his fellow Impressionists might have done, Sisley here turns the stack into a virtually colorless, dark silhouette, in contrast to the dappled sky and the flickering landscape around it.

Artist Death Date:  1899
Artist Country: French
Title of Work:  Haystacks at Moret: morning light
Date of Work:  1891
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/european/em_ipa00232.html
Citation:  
Index Words:  haystacks, hayfield
Place:  France
Notes:  Strongly reminiscent of Monet's hay paintings, this work shows four shaggy haystacks, close together at the edge of a field, with a figure nearby to show that they are 12 or 15 feet high, too large for cocks, but too untidy to be permanent.

Image: Landscape with haystack

Artist Country: French
Title of Work:  Landscape with haystack
Date of Work:  1895
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/536.jpg
Citation:  Schwartz, Constance H. The Shock of Modernism in America. Roslyn Harbor, NY,1984, p.34, plate 47.[color]
Index Words:  haystacks, hayfield
Place:  France
Notes:  As in ID 534, Sisley's stacks in this painting are backlit, casting shadows onto a flecked field. The largest stack is domed, but not so tidily as meules of grain. Though darker than its context, the stacked hay is textured by swirls reminiscent of Van Gogh.

Image: Haystacks at Chailly at sunrise
ID:  537
Artist:  Monet, Claude
Artist Birth Date:  1840
Artist Death Date:  1926
Artist Country: French
Title of Work:  Haystacks at Chailly at sunrise
Date of Work:  1865
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.glyphs.com/art/monet/hayricks.jpg
Citation:  
Index Words:  haystacks, haycocks, sunset
Place:  France
Notes:  ^^^ This early Monet, owned by the San Diego Museum of Art, absent from Wildenstein's catalogue raisonne, was shown at the great 1995 Chicag Art Institute Monet retrospective, from which the following Glyphs notes are quoted. 'The relative sizes of the Haystacks as well as the inclination of the low-lying clouds leads the eye forcefully toward the vanishing point of the rising sun. This leftward-leaning composition is accentuated by the exaggerated horizontality of the canvas. The muted colors and relatively finished brushwork, along with the pyramidal shapes of the haystacks, convey a sense of permanence that somewhat contradicts the depiction of something as transient as a sunrise' (or, indeed, a haystack!)

Image: Haystacks, overcast day

Artist:  Monet, Claude
Artist Birth Date:  1840
Artist Death Date:  1926
Artist Country: French
Title of Work:  Haystacks, overcast day
Date of Work:  1884
Medium:  oil
Period/Style:  nineteenth century
URL:  http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=3451
Citation:  
Index Words:  haystacks, haycocks
Place:  France
Notes:  ID 538 and ID 539 are very similar in all but the light and, in this regard, adumbrate the more famous grainstack series of 1890. Each has three haycocks, one to the right foreground, the others to the left, with the furthest being near the center, close to the same row of poplars. The overcast in ID 538 gives the haycocks a more intense russet color, gently highlit from above.

Each has three haycocks, one to the right foreground, the others to the left, with the furthest being near the center, close to the same row of poplars. The cocks in ID 539 are backlit slightly from the right; they cast a very short shadow on the ground, suggesting a time soon after noon.
