Examining the work of the American watercolourist, Charles Burchfield (1893-1967), this study traces his life and artistic output through scores of paintings, organized thematically rather than chronologically. It also looks at comparative works by his peers and mentors, and by present-day artists whose visions parallel his. Burchfield's achievements are considered in the context of the cultural and artistic environment in which he worked, and in a broad international context of landscape painting, with particular reference to turn-of-the-century Scandinavian landscapes.
