Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967), Midsummer in the Woods, 1951-1959; watercolor, charcoal, and chalk on joined paper, 40 1/4 x 30 1/4 inches; Private 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).
