“I recognized at once a powerful talent and achievement. Burrell had continued painting, but in remote hinterlands of the country and seems to have refused to make his work known in the metropolis. Had he done so he would have been recognized long ago as a major figure in Canadian art. I see him as an unknown talent awaiting discovery – an individual voice “crying in the wilderness” – who willfully rejected recognition by an art market seduced by fashions and movements he would have nothing to do with.”
