columbus street scene
Emerson Burkhart – Columbus Street Scene' 11 x 14, oil on board, Signed lr, 'E Burkhart Apr. 54' Excellent condition $3,250

Burkhart’s urban street scenes are among the most desirable and most collected of his works. They wonderfully captured the essence of life in Columbus during the 1940’s, ‘50’s and ‘60’s. This smaller gem was painted in the early morning hours in the first weeks of spring and clearly depicts the grass and other landscape straining to come to full color which contrasts with the dingy brick, and other rundown homes in the area. This was the reality of many neighborhoods within a short drive of Burkhart’s home on Woodland Avenue.

big darby creek
Emerson Burkhart - 'Big Darby Creek' circa, early 1960's, 16 x 30, oil on canvas, Signed ll, 'E Burkhart', painted "Election Day, Nov. 7th", verso. Excellent condition $3,250

Burkhart was famous for capturing on his canvases the scenery around Central Ohio. This colorful example was painted along the western border of Franklin County on a late autumn day. The painting captures elements of detail most often found in his works from the mid-1950's but also includes many of the brighter colors he incorporated in the later years of his life. This is a great example of his early '60's landscape style and a would enhance any Burkhart collection.

east main at champion
Emerson Burkhart - 'East Main at Champion' 24 x 30, oil on canvas, Signed lr, 'E Burkhart 69' Excellent Condition $8,950

Here is one of Burkhart's last larger street scenes painted just months prior to his death in 1969. This was one of his favorite areas of town in which to paint. Foot traffic and commerce are depicted here with the pizza restaurant, Oakley Cleaners, and many pedestrians who are going about their business. This outstanding example of his work is painted in a bright palette and would be an excellent addition to any Burkhart collection.

becky lintner and jimmy lee barnes
Emerson Burkhart - 'Becky Lintner and Jimmy Lee Barnes' 1958, 36 x 40, oil on canvas, signed lower left, 'E Burkhart 58' Excellent Condition $9,750

Offered here is a large and delightful painting that captures the essence of teenage relationships in the 1950's. In one of Columbus' many alleys sits a vintage Model T pick-up, the prized possession of Jimmy. His gal, Becky Lintner, is approaching him from the background. Burkhart leaves it up to us to decide what will happen next. This is a unique painting with a special narrative that dials in directly to the mood of the times.

Emerson Burkhart - 'Dirt Road at Hoover Dam' 1968, 18 x 24, oil on board, signed lower left, E Burkhart and verso, E. Burkhart 13 Oct. 68. Excellent condition $4,250

Burkhart loved painting in Delaware County, and especially at Hoover Reservoir. He could be frequently found painting colorful autumn landscapes, as this painting depicts. We have handled several of Burkhart's autumn motif paintings. This is one of the most colorful examples we have seen in recent years and it comes in one of his signature homemade frames.

winter-landscape
Emerson Burkhart - 'Winter Landscape', 1944, 23 x 34, oil on canvas, signed lower right 'E. Burkhart 44'. Excellent condition $6,750

Burkhart did not invest much time painting during the winter months. He typically spent time reading and 'recharging' his mind so that he could jump fully into his painting once the weather improved. We have only seen four works he painted during the winter and this is by far, the largest and best executed of those we've seen.
