Leighton, Clare, 1898-1989
Found in 338 Collections and/or Records:
Six large sketches, clockwise from upper left: cranberry scoop, sprig of cranberries, cranberry rake with a long handle, cranberry scoop, two-pronged pitchfork, sprig of cranberry flowers. The drawings of the cranberry plant and flowers are on separate pieces of paper that have been taped into windows in this sheet. The bottom right scoop, labeled "cranberry picker", has also been taped over the page.
Seven large sketches of cranberrying equipment, including a small hand-held scoop, a paddle of some sort, two rods, a cylindrical ring/bucket, etc.
Rough sketch of figures harvesting cranberries in a hilly landscape, with some piled boxes in the center. One figure at the top seems to be waving his hand up, while a large cluster of people occupy the upper right portion.
Eight sketches of figures in varying degrees of completion. At upper left corner, a standing figure with hands on his hips. The other figures are in various kneeling positions, except one who is only visible from torso upward.
Large pile of cranberrying baskets on the left side of the page, with smaller sketches of cranberrying baskets scattered around. Burn hole in the bottom right corner.
Six figures (plus one group of three figures in bottom right) in various poses. Includes 2 sketches of men carrying boxes of cranberries, figures kneeling to scoop up cranberries, etc.
Landscape with long curving hills and a forested background. Piles of cranberry boxes visible in the middle distance. Resembles (in reverse) the landscape in the left portion of the final print.
No corrections visible.
Numbered 1 in upper right corner.
No corrections visible.
Numbered 2 in upper right corner.
Numbered 3 in upper right corner.
Poor printing quality, speckled with white dots. No corrections visible. It appears that Leighton did not incorporate many of the corrections she made to State 3 into this print.
Numbered 4 in upper right corner.
No visible corrections.
Numbered 5 in upper right corner.
Unnumbered state. This print seems to be identical to State 5, except that Leighton has added corrections in gouache.
Numbered 6 in upper right corner.
Numbered 8 in upper right corner.
Unnumbered state. Details in the arms of the laborers indicate that it comes after State 6 (there is no State 7), while other elements suggest that it comes between State 8 and State 9---specifically, the foregrounded woman's basket of cranberries, the baskets behind her arms, and the arms of the middle pair of laborers.
Numbered 9 in upper right corner.
Signed by Leighton. Labeled: Farming, Wedgewood [sic] 609.
