Burchfield, Charles Ephraim (American painter, draftsman, and illustrator, 1893-1967)

Note: Primarily associated with American Scene Painting, Burchfield was schooled in Cleveland and began painting decorative and expressively colored watercolors ca. 1915. He married, moved to a suburb of Buffalo, and began working as a designer of a wallpaper firm in 1922. Painting full-time by 1929, his works became larger, and he concentrated on realist, urban subjects, such as the industry around Buffalo. In 1936-1937, Fortune magazine commissioned Burchfield to paint railway yards and coal mines. During his later period, from 1943-1967, his works became more expressionist, evoking his pantheist beliefs.
