Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967), Goldenrod in December, 1948; watercolor on paper, 26 x 46 inches; Collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art
"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).
