Born near Cleveland, Ohio, Burr was basically a self-taught artist, although he did spend some time at the Art Institute of Chicago. After returning from a five year period in Europe, poor health forced him to reside in Colorado, and then to the desert areas of New Mexico, Arizona, and California. This region was the basis of most of his graphic work, which amounted to about 300 etchings, drypoints, and aquatints. His plates show the changing moods, intense heat, shifting sands, and clouds of the Southwest desert country. Burr's works are visually synonymous with some of the descriptive passages in Willa Cather's novel of the Southwest, Death Comes for the Archbishop.
