Leighton, Clare, 1898-1989
Found in 31 Collections and/or Records:
Signed by Leighton. Labeled: Grist mill, 7/50.
Three circular compositional studies with concepts for indoor milling scenes. The most detailed of these resembles Study 6 in composition (with the name sitting to the right of the milling wheel). To the left Leighton has made a list of objects: [illegible], scoop, sack, corn, wheat, mat (or "rat"?). In the upper right someone (not Leighton) has written "original Grist Mill Idea taken from inside" in graphite.
Two circular compositional studies with concepts for Grist Milling, both slightly different from the final image. The larger study has a wheelbarrow and a different tool assembly/arrangement from the final image. All elements are reversed from the final print.
Grain bags, sieve, pail, and a paddle.
Two detailed sketches of grain/flour bags. A small round sieve with the words "light at edges" [?] beneath. A sketch of a pail and a paddle.
Large, detailed sketch a windmill, although the sails are drawn in very lightly. Building is rounded, with a conical roof. Leighton probably saw this windmill during her travels in search of a functioning grist mill (related in her lengthy description, under "Writings - Grist Milling - Drafts 1 and 4" in this collection). However, no such building is incorporated into the final design.
Above is a sketch of a scoop. Top left corner is torn away.
Sketches of two flour bags, a basket and a house on a hill.
Two barrels: one standing, one lying on its side. The upper left side of the page largely cut away.
Full-page sketch of the interior of a mill. An outline of a figure sits to the right of what looks like a rotating millstone. The graphite on this page is very smudged.
Indoor sketch of what appear to be stairs leading up the right side. In the middle, what looks like a large, rectangular mechanical sieve.
Seems to be a long, spiraling staircase, such as would have spiraled upwards inside the grist mill. Verso: someone (not Leighton) has written "studies for original Grist Mill Idea".
Cluster of three objects in the upper left corner. Labeled "middle sieve and basket, harpoon fork for hay".
Numbered 1 in upper right corner.
Numbered 2 in upper right corner.
Numbered 3 in upper right corner.
