John Steuart Curry's funeral, Winchester, Kansas

Three photographs showing John Steuart Curry's funeral at the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Winchester, Kansas. Curry died August 29, 1946 in Madison, Wisconsin, and he was buried near his childhood home of Dunavant in Jefferson County. A well known artist, he is recognized as a leader in the movement for realistic regionalism. Curry is probably most recognized for painting the famous mural titled Tragic Prelude showing John Brown and the early struggles for freedom in Kansas. Along with the Tragic Prelude, his murals of The Conquistadors and Kansas Pastoral hang at the Kansas capitol.
