JOHN STEUART CURRY - HOUNDS AND COYOTE Hounds and Coyote

BY JOHN STEUART CURRY

 

CURRY IS FASCINATED by animals, whether tamed or wild.

In 1932, he followed “The Greatest Show on Earth,”

and made several superb circus pictures and lithographs.

Curry himself considers Hounds and Coyote one of his best lithographs.

The three animals are vessels of the most violent action, and

there is real untrammeled ferocity in this Kansas night scene. The coyote,

an animal of great swiftness and considerable cunning,

rarely allows itself to get within such close range of dogs, and

undoubtedly the encounter Curry represents is not of the coyote’s seeking.
