About this Item

Tucson: Mitchell Brown Gallery (1990). Foreword by Jeffrey Mitchell. Introductory text by Peter S. Briggs, Curator, University of Arizona Museum of Art. Quarto, cloth, in a dust wrapper. 45 pages, illustrated. Limited to 750 copies. Dust wrapper lightly scuffed as usual, but otherwise as new. Catalog of an exhibition of the desert etchings of this noted American artist. ".In quantity and quality, Burr's western subjects, particularly his landscapes of Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico, represent his most substantial body of work. As an artist of the American West, Burr chose to focus his attention on the desert. In 1921 while in Denver, he completed the copper plates for the Desert Set, thirty-five images that have dominated contemporary appreciation of his work.Burr's desert views contain the powerful combination of virtuoso craftsmanship and personal vision, a vision that integrated the essential elements of the desert with a fascination of (sic) all its nuances." (from the Introduction by Peter S. Briggs). Bookseller Inventory # 461
