Haying is a fantastic 32 x 37 cm (12 x 14 in.) oil on canvas on paperboard mounted on hardboard. The original artwork was painted in 1939, during Grant Wood's most famous decade, and belongs to the National Gallery of Art. Grant Wood is arguably one of the most iconic American painters of all time. When American art was still finding its own identity, Wood was part of the Regionalist movement, opposing more urban depictions and focusing on the working people of the United States countryside. He was also an exceptional landscapist, as it's possible to witness in works such as Haying, Stone City, Iowa, and New Road.
Haying was painted in a mid-sized rectangle-shaped canvas, a scale that Wood frequently used for the landscape genre. While at the beginning of the 1920s, the painter completed his education abroad, studying in Paris and incorporating some formal traits of early Modernists, especially of Fauve painters. At the beginning of the 1930s, Wood solidified his style in his unique hard-edge painting, mainly using earthy and warm colors and establishing his visual approach to Realism. Haying is an incredible example of Wood's painting during his maturity, presenting finely detailed pictures with a subtle yet energetic color palette.
The artwork shows a vast green field. As in his late paintings, Wood's work is very precise, using grading, small strokes, and warm and bright colors to make his entrancing pictures. As in his portraits, Grant Wood's choice of subject was focused on the heart of America, the small cities in the midwest that often got ignored or overlooked under the excitement over the industrial and urban Northeast. The painter's pictures are eulogies of the rural working people, and as such, usually express hope or an optimistic outlook.
The composition captures the audience's gaze through its complex use of lines: horizontal columns of bushes run through the vast hill and field, probably being part of an area of cultivation of a particular fruit since Wood's work also emphasized the nurturing aspect of the land. The picture is very bright, showing a beautiful sunny day, and its palette is a bright blue for the sky, a soft red for a house and barn, and the top center and warm green for the grass and trees. Haying is a unique artwork that is exemplary of Wood's skill as a painter.
