In the late 1940s when this work was painted, Charles Burchfield was engaged in painting the environments of "Middle America"—the small city streets lined with houses, and industrial landscapes bordered by woodlands or fields, These places were familar to him as he lived at the time in upstate New York, near Buffalo, and these places formed his personal experience and environment. His realistic style described the the mood of the common man, living anonymous lives in suburbia. Lifke many of his works, this watercolor contrasts the geometries of suburbia with the natural forms of trees, grasses, and a fence that seems to enclose nature and separate two distinct worlds.
