Lit: Basil Taylor, Stubbs, 1971, pp.19–20, 39–40, 213, repr. In his choice of ‘Haymakers’ and ‘Reapers’ as subjects, Stubbs may have been partly influenced by the current popularity of rural subjects by Gainsborough, Wheatley and Morland, and by some of the many illustrators of Thomson's Seasons.pls.103 (detail 104) and 100 (detail 101); Constance-Anne Parker, Mr. pp.123 and 127; Basil Taylor, ‘Farming as Stubbs saw it’, Country Life, 28 June 1973, pp.1858–60, repr. Painted in his sixty-first year, these were Stubb's only exhibits in 1786, and his first exhibited pictures since 1782, when five of the seven works he showed at the ra were enamel of similar size, both dated 1783 (National Trust, Bearsted Collection, Upton House; repr. There is enough similarity between both versions of ‘Haymakers’ and an oval haymaking scene painted in and figures from Thomson's Seasons’ (Whitworth Art Gallery; repr.T02257 REAPERS 1785 Inscribed ‘Geo: Stubbs pinxit / 1785’ b.r.Oil on panel, 35 1/2 × 53 7/8 (90 × 137) Purchased with the aid of a special government grant, with assistance from The Friends of the Tate Gallery, The Pilgrim Trust, The National Art-Collections Fund, Mr. Heinz II, Inchcape Management Services Ltd., The Jephcott Charitable Trust, The Post Office, The Joseph Rank Trust, The J.British Watercolours from the John Edward Taylor Collection in the Whitworth Art Gallery, 1973, p.8) to suggest either that Stubbs and Hearne studied the same scene, or that Stubbs borrowed from Hearne the images of the girl pausing in front of the haycart with her hayrake upright, the woman raking in hay and the man on top of the haycart.
Such borrowings by Stubbs from an exhibited picture by Hearne might partly explain why Stubbs did not choose to exhibit the 1783 versions of ‘Haymakers’ and ‘Reapers’; but in any case, Stubbs evidently realised that he could improve on the of his first versions of the subjects.
