Curran, Charles Courtney

Charles Courtney Curran had an interest and aptitude for art at an early age, and when he was twenty he went to Cincinnati to study at the Fine Arts Academy of Cincinnati. After one year he traveled to New York to study at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League.

In 1888 Curran and his young bride Grace left the United States to study in Paris, the center of the art world. While in Paris Charles Courtney Curran enrolled at the Académie Julian where he started to focus on the new topic and explored different avenues regarding an assortment of painting styles. Many of his pictures from this time were painted outside en Plein air and feature fashionable women enjoying a variety of leisure activities.

After two and half years of learning in Paris, they returned to the United States in 1891. For the following ten years, the Currans partitioned time between New York where they had an apartment and an art studio, and Ohio where they spent most of their summers with their extended family.

When Charles Courtney Curran visited the summer arts settlement of Cragsmoor, New York, he fell in love with the place, and for the next forty years the whole family would spend summers at Cragsmoor, and Curran would create some of his best-known paintings.

Charles Curran's work is represented in many museums, and his outdoor paintings of women have remained popular with individual collectors to this day.
