    Accompanying this lot is a detailed research report completed by The Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo, New York, dated March 2016. In the report, Nancy Weekly compares the present work to one of similar characteristics in the Burchfield Penney Art Center's collection, Untitled (Walking Figure), dated a year prior, 1918 (watercolor, gouache and pencil on paper, 18 x 11 1/4 in., Gift of Tony Sisti, 1979). She writes, "During the first few days in January 1918, Burchfield mistakenly wrote '1917' in his journal, so it is possible that the Street Scene with Figure might have been painted January 9, 1918–the day before the painting in the Museum's collection–and Burchfield made an error when recording the date on the back."
