Charles Courtney Curran: Seeking the Ideal
French-trained American artist Charles Courtney Curran (1861-1942) is known for his sparkling canvasses 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, NY.
