Charles Burchfield: The Ohio Landscapes, 1915–1920

Cleveland Museum of Art

22 Dec 2018 - 5 May 2019

The American modernist Charles Burchfield described 1917 as his ‘golden year’, during which he refined and developed the vivid palette and mysterious symbolism of his watercolour landscapes. This exhibition brings together around 30 drawings from the five-year period centred on 1917; together, the works reveal the importance of the landscape of Northeast Ohio on Burchfield’s painterly sensibility. Find out more about the Charles Burchfield exhibition from the Cleveland Museum’s website.
