The vibrant, visionary landscapes of Charles Burchfield (1893-1967), one of the leading American artists of the 20th century, were the focus of this major exhibition, featuring over 50 paintings borrowed from important public and private collections across the United States.

The exhibition provided a remarkable opportunity to examine the artist’s luminous, spiritual interpretations of the world around him. This exhibition was co-organized by the Brandywine River Museum of Art and the Burchfield Penney Art Center.

At the Brandywine River Museum of Art, the exhibition was generously sponsored by Chuck and Adriane Bowers, in honor of Matthew DiSalvo, an artist and outdoorsman. Additional support was provided by Morris and Boo Stroud.
