"Old Inn at Gardenville renders also with great exactitude a simple, but subtle mood of nature with dappled autumn sky, a group of frame houses, and a little tree all yellow against the pale harmonies of the rest. This is in a gentler and more traditional vein than some of the others, but not the less moving and real" (Edward Hopper, "Charles Burchfield: American," Arts, vol. 14, July 1938, p. 9).
