Lot description
With this print, Curry has captured the mood of common, hardworking folk during the Great Depression. Despite being surrounded by the great innovations of the previous decades (steam and electricity), these farmers are shown as being bound to the land that supports them. Curry elaborates on this with the slow moving march of the carriage underlining the slow but steady reliability and necessity that this trip to the train embodies.

John Steuart Curry (1897-1946) is best known as an American Regionalist artists active during the Great Depression through World War II. A central theme in his work is the struggle between man and nature. Deeply devoted to his native Kansas, Curry used the state as subject matter for many of his works.
