Baling Hay

...Mort Künstler painted this farm scene in 1990?

It shows the method of baling hay during the first half of the 20th century. A stationary baler was set up in the middle of the field and bull rakes pulled by a team of horses would bring the hay to the baler. The painting was used on a collector plate published by the Danbury Mint. The eight plates in the series were done under the pseudonym of Emmett Kaye and more than 350,000 were sold!
