Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967), The Dark Ravine, 1946; watercolor, white chalk, and summary charcoal underdrawing on white wove paper, 40 x 34 inches; Karen and Kevin Kennedy Collection
"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).
