Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967), Untitled (Distant Fire in Early Spring or Late Fall), undated; conté crayon on paper, 11 x 17 inches; Gift of the Burchfield Foundation, 1975
"Burchfield has exacted a quality that we may call poetic, romantic, lyric, or what you will. By sympathy with the particular, he has made it epic and universal." - Edward Hopper, who was friends with Burchfield (both were represented by the Frank K.M. Rehn Galleries in New York).
