Inventive Virtuoso

Charles E. Burchfield has been identified as a naturalist, realist, modernist, romantic and transcendentalist — all with equal validity. He pioneered unique watercolor techniques and invented symbols to convey emotions and sensations. Burchfield’s range of interests, passionate devotion to nature, and cyclical interpretation of subjects keeps his work fascinating to audiences today.
