Carl Battaglia Galleries operated in New York City, New York, during the 1970s. Modernist New York painter Charles Ephraim Burchfield (1893-1967) was known for his watercolor depictions of nature.
In addition to Charles Burchfield, Carl Battaglia Galleries exhibited the works of Roy Moyer, David Rohn, and others. Other notable exhibitions at the gallery include The Artist and the Animal (1974), held in conjunction with F.A.R. Gallery and featuring artists from the sevententh to twentieth centuries.
Born in Ohio, Charles Burchfield gained his early artistic training under Henry George Keller at the Cleveland School of Art. Burchfield, who was initially influenced by the work of Charles Dana Gibson, worked as a wallpaper designer for H. M. Birge and Co., in Buffalo, New York. In the 1920s, he began showing his art at Montross Gallery and, later, at Frank K. M. Rehn Galleries. Burchfield was also an art educator and lecturer and served on the art purchasing committee of the Albright Gallery.
