Overview

Charles Courtney Curran: Seeking the Ideal

French-trained American artist Charles Courtney Curran (1861–1942) is known for his sparkling canvases of women in gardens and other outdoor settings. Curran brought the broken brushstrokes and sun-drenched palette of French Impressionist painting to a distinctly American landscape—creating many of his works along the shores of Lake Erie and in the mountain hamlet of Cragsmoor, New York.

Henry Clay Frick purchased Curran’s 1890 painting Woman with a Horse and Carriage, which typically hangs in the Clayton library. For this exhibition, our painting will join about 60 others as Curran’s work travels to three North American venues (including The Frick Art Museum) in this first critical retrospective of his career since his death in 1942.

The exhibition is organized by the Dixon Gallery & Gardens, Memphis, and will be accompanied by a full-color catalog.
