One of the country's finest watercolorists of the twentieth century, Charles Burchfield produced a variety of effects unprecedented in scale and technique for the medium. Adhering to the nineteenth-century Romantic tradition of revealing nature's primordial energy through the drama of human emotions, Burchfield made the commonplace extraordinary, the everyday miraculous. Charles Burchfield's Seasons offers a wealth of visionary art rendered in his personal abstract stylistic shorthand that vividly expresses the moods and sounds of light and wind. Accompanied by quotations from Charles Burchfield's Journals, the color plates in this book resonate with the artist's vibrancy.
