Image: Haymaking
ID:  6160
Artist:  Stubbs, George
Artist Birth Date:  1724
Artist Death Date:  1806
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Haymaking
Date of Work:  1785

Citation:  Kidson, Alex. George Stubbs: a celebration. Tate, 2006, front cover.
Index Words:  haycart, woman, rake, men forks, horse
Place:  England
Notes:  Seen in the Stubbs exhibit at the Frick, May 2007. Although the exhibit was dominated by Stubbs' animal paintings, the booklet which accompanied it had his haymaking scenes on both the front (ID 76) and back (ID 77) covers. According to the wall caption, this, the 1785 version, is now seen as one of the artist's masterpieces, but received a lukewarm reception since it lacked sentimentality and narrative detail. The unforced actions of the haymakers are part of a gracefully orchestrated design that precisely incorporates each movement of raking and carting. The action pivots around the woman, woh is posed at the center like a classical goddess. She looks out, inviting the viewers to witness activities that, through, ritualistic repetition, have become as intrinsic to nature as are the seasons.

Notes:  At last, I thought, a renaissance Italian painting of a hayfield. The hay-colored shapes in the background do resemble stacks but, when seen in the context of the whole painting, are actually arches under a ruined viaduct or aqueduct. Equally implausible in a desert scene!

Notes:  ^^^ Seen in Santa Cruz, April, 2007. Visiting a couple of new friends, I was astonished to see a really fine oil painting of haymaking in their study. My friend, amazed by my excitement, told me his uncle had done it. His uncle happened to be the famous regionalist painter, John Steuart Curry, whose other hay paintings were already in my collection.

Citation:  Beig, Maria. Lost weddings: a novel. NY: Persea Books, 1990. cover illustration
Index Words:  women, rake, haystack
Place:  Germany
Notes:  The novel, translated by cousin Jaimy Gordon and her husband Peter Blickle, is set near Lake Constance in the District of Ravensburg where the photograph was taken. There is little hay making in these dark stories, but there are notes on two hay terms. Hay holiday : Formerly the German school year started in spring. In early summer, school would close for a few days or more so that the children could help their parents with the haying. and Heinzen: wooden racks in the form of tripods to dry hay on. The latter reference is particularly intriguing since it appears (p. 62) in the context of a description of a hilly landscape, where traditional ways of drying hay might have survived longer.
