Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
Watercolorist Charles Ephraim Burchfield (1893-1967) is one of America’s most original artists. Best known for his romantic, often fantastic depictions of nature, Burchfield developed a unique style of watercolor painting that reflected distinctly American subjects and his profound respect for nature…
Although he lived next door to Niagara Falls, artist Charles Burchfield (18931967) chose to focus his nature-based art on the ground beneath his feet. Curated by artist Robert Gober, this exhibition features over one hundred major watercolors, drawings, oils on canvas, sketches, notebooks, journals, and doodles by this visionary American artist. Acclaimed by critics and known to a broad public audience during his lifetime, Burchfield is curiously under-appreciated today.
