CHARLES E. BURCHFIELD: THE SACRED WOODS. Nancy Weekly. Drawing Center, New York, 1993. Organized by Burchfield Art Center, Buffalo State College. Published by State University of New York Press, Albany. 120 pp. with 105 ills. (40 col.). 29 x 22 cm. LC 93-4689 ISBN 0791417832 In English.
Offers a detailed examination of the interplay of spiritual and aesthetic concerns in the work of celebrated American artist Burchfield (1893-1967), presenting 80 watercolors and a selection of drawings, prints and paintings that illustrate the full thematic and stylistic range of his distinctive oeuvre, including many examples of the luminous visionary landscapes and nature studies for which he is best known. A substantial six-part text traces Burchfield's search for an artistic idiom suited to his fundamentally pantheistic view of nature, discussing such topics as his development of symbolic visual analogues for human traits and emotions, his treatments of Christian subjects, and the relationship of his work to Romantic and Oriental traditions.
