Description

Burchfield produced this evocative pencil and ink drawing on July 18, 1915. At the time, he was on summer break from his studies at the Cleveland School of Art (now the Cleveland Institute of Art), which he attended from 1912 to 1916. The notes about color scribbled on this drawing indicate that Burchfield must have considered it a study for a painting. The lines radiating from the sun and casting intense shadows along the trees suggest the baking heat of a summer’s day.
