Exhibition "Charles Burchfield: Landscapes of Ohio, 1915–1920"explores the key role that northeastern Ohio played in the art and life of American artist Charles Burchfield. The exhibition features about 30 drawings made between 1915 and 1920, a period that Burchfield called his golden year."
In 1917, he painted more pictures than ever before, using the landscape of the Midwest to express universal emotions and moods. Burchfield experimented diligently with watercolors in both Salem, his hometown, and Cleveland, where he attended the Cleveland School of Art. Aquarelle allowed the artist to explore the surrounding landscape and develop a new abstract style that defined his work, even after he left Ohio in 1921.
