Charles E. Burchfield + M.H.Birge & Sons Co. Sunflower Wallpaper 24" Section
In 1973 to celebrate the opening of the exhibition Wallpapers by Charles E. Burchfield at the Burchfield Center (now the Burchfield Penney Art Center), the M.H. Birge & Sons Co. created a limited run of the wallpaper design "Sunflowers" c. 1922.
M.H. Birge & Sons Co. was the original manufacturer of this paper and great care was taken to reproduce it at the time.
Sunflowers are a frequent Burchfield subject and of the tall, coarse stemmed large, brilliant yellow-rayed flower he said" It really ought to be our National flower".
