Charles Burchfield's Journals The Poetry of Place
Charles Burchfield's Journals - The Poetry of Place, edited by J. Benjamin Townsend
When he died in 1967 Burchfield had filled 72 bound notebooks with his personal entries, comprising some 10,000 pages. He included sketches, doodles, clippings, weather notes, and other marginalia and insertions offering a rare glimpse into the artist's life. Presented here in book form, the edited journals are organized thematically. The editor's introductions place each section in biographical and art historical context. The material is annotated and informed by the previously unpublished archives of the Burchfield Art Center ( now the Burchfield Penney Art Center) and complemented by 41 color plates and 131 black and white illustrations.
