Charles Ephraim Burchfield (1893-1967) Part III

After 1940 Burchfield’s style changed, however, and by the mid-1940s he had abandoned realism, returning to his early interest in personal interpretations of nature. His paintings from this period convey a sense of wonder at the color, movement, and forms of nature, particularly in connection with the seasons. A notable example of his later style is The Sphinx and the Milky Way (1946).
