In an attempt to contribute to the meager body of information available on Curry, this thesis will examine his life and the degree to which his autobiography is reflected in his art. I argue that his unsettled attitude towards style reflects a deep autobiographical element in his art. As he encountered new experiences, his art continued to grow and develop to reflect the new aspects of his life. In particular, his biography is apparent in three distinct areas of his art: his experience, his environment, and social influences.
