Charles Burchfield, Journals, September 3, 1942

It is my habit to hear the making of acquaintance with new people, and probably if no one else ever made first overtures I would never meet anyone. So it was with the visit of the Soyers—but I need have had no apprehension. I liked them both—Soyer was all artist, and interested so completely in pictures. He said his visit here was the happiest day of his stay in Buffalo, which I can well understand, for there is not an artist in Buffalo who is completely an artist—The most are dilettanti, more interested in social life, or the politics of “art circles.”

Charles Burchfield, September 3, 1942
