C. Curry Bohm

C. Curry Bohm (1894-1971) was among that second generation of members who joined after the club had moved to 1012 N. Dearborn. He is listed in exhibits of 1930 and 1945, and won the Gold Medal in 1931 (at the age of 37)

As you can see above, he was also a plein air painter, and he traveled around to various scenic areas including Brown County, Indiana.

Here's a photo of some of the Brown County artists. Bohm is fourth from left in the front row.

Other P&C members include L.O. Griffith who is second from left, front row, and Oscar Ericson who is first on the left, second row.

As his presence on the internet will attest, he was quite prolific and there is an ongoing interest in collecting his paintings - which I think are quite lively and cheerful. Though at this point, they are modestly priced.

I really love his snow scenes. They make my feet feel cold and wet.
