Emerson Burkhart – 'Tilled Farm Field'
1943, oil on canvas, 30 x 36, signed lower right, "Emerson C. Burkhart". 

Although farms and landscapes were a staple of Burkhart's work, this is an interesting example of the field, although the most prominent feature in the painting, taking back stage to the small farming community tucked behind the trees along the horizon. Burkhart invested 16 sessions as noted by the hash marks he painted on the back of the canvas. It is also inscribed in pencil, August 1, 1943. The work is unframed and has light cracking throughout the upper half of the painting. The paint is stable and there are no losses, however the work is in need of cleaning.
