Curry, John

Curry, John (Steuart)

(1897–1946) painter; born in Jefferson County, Kans. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago (1916–18), made drawings for the Ringling Brothers Circus in 1932, and later became artist in residence at the University of Wisconsin (1936–46). Tornado Over Kansas (1933) is a fine example of his populist subject matter, and The Mississippi (1935), demonstrates his sensitivity to social issues.
