However, further research and a superior reproduction of Lorenzetti's famous fresco on the effects of good government showed only grain harvesting in the countryside beyond the city walls.

Period/Style:  fifteenth century

Index Words:  scythes, mowing, women, forks, raking, haycocks, haycart
Place:  France
Notes:  ^^^Named for and possibly once owned by the polygamous Tudor monarch, it was however created when he was under ten years old. The June scene has elements in common with the Limbourg's more famous work, but rearranged. Three men scythe in rhythm at left; barefooted women use forks to rake the loose hay into cocks; the cart, without horse, stands by pollarded willows.

Notes:  Given the dearth of haymaking scenes in the Italian renaissance, the caption given to this French scene is hardly appropriate: The influence of the Italian Renaissance is also evident in the depiction of June's labor, mowing and gathering hay. The artist emphasizes the grace and nobility of the workers, not the work performed.
