John Steuart Curry sketch

Curry, John Steuart

In the late 1930s, artist and Kansas native John Steuart Curry produced this preliminary sketch for the mural, "Tragic Prelude," housed at the Kansas Statehouse. The sketch references John Brown and the struggle against slavery during the Territorial Period. Curry completed the mural in 1942, but due to Kansans' critical reaction he refused to complete the project. In 1993, The Wunderlich Mongerson, a Chicago-based art gallery, collaborated with Curry's widow to donate this sketch.

Capitol, Topeka, Kansas

This black and white photograph shows the preliminary sketches by Regionalist artist John Steuart Curry, (1897-1946), for the rotunda at the statehouse in Topeka, Kansas. The sketches were a reflection of the "historic struggle of man with nature" and how the hand of erosion was moving toward the abandoned farm house. These panels were to be commissioned into murals for the second chapter in the state's history. However, the proposals never became a reality because of the controversy surrounding Curry's earlier projects "Tragic Prelude" and the "Kansas Pastoral" which illustrated the first and third chapters in the state's history on the second-floor of the capitol.
