Comentarios: In the late 1880s, he launched his career as an illustrator for Harper's, and Leslie's, and was later best known as "the etcher of the American desert." From 1896-1900 he traveled in Europe, then concentrated on etching upon his return. He is said to have produced 25,000 etchings. Burr moved to Denver in 1906 because of failing health; and in 1926 moved to Phoenix. His etchings depict the landscape of Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California.
