The year 1920 was an auspicious one for Charles Ephraim Burchfield (1893-1967). He was now a year out of the Army (Camouflage Corps) and his one-man exhibition of watercolors at the Kevorkian Gallery in New York had resulted in enough sales to allow him a three-month leave of absence from his job in the cost department at the Mullins Company, a metal fabricator in Salem, Ohio. He spent the entire summer painting "romantic landscapes in which the skies were the feature." Among them were Starlings in the Rain, Wellesville, Ohio (cover ).
