Curry was born on a farm in Kansas in 1897 and studied art at the Art Institute of Chicago. Coming to New York, he taught at Cooper Union and the Art Students League. He started his professional career as an illustrator for popular magazines and gradually turned to lithography in the late 1920's and 1930's. His lithographs involve regionalism in subject matter and the social issues of his times. Curry's print of "John Brown," the abolitionist, is not only a powerful image, but also considered a masterpiece in the field of lithography.
