The Heavens -  BURCHFIELD

The Heavens
Wood engraving in collaboration with JJ Lankes, 1923-24, Czestochowski 4, Cleveland/Prasse 185, edition 13. 6 1/8 x 4 5/8 in. Initialed in the block (B+L) by Burchfield and Lankes. Signed and titled by both artists in pencil and also inscribed "no. 5". The print is titled along the bottom margin in pencil. This is a superb impression of this extremely rare work. The margins are full and the condition is fine apart from small old hinges showing at the top corners, well away from the image. Burchfield and Lankes published eleven wood engravings together. Burchfield did the designs and Lankes cut the blocks. The Heavens deals with the world of the spirit and it reaffirms the mysticism of Burchfields's work from 1915-17. This wood engraving was intended for a publication of Ecclesiastes along with three other prints. That publication never materialized. The checklist of Burchfield's prints by Joseph Czestochowski appeared in the American Art Journal, November 1976, pages 99-110.
