Public Statues and Sculpture Association

Thomas (Tom) Curr (1887–1958)

Edinburgh commercial artist, who worked for the colour printers McLagan & Cumming, but also exhibited portrait and landscape works in oils. A leading member of the Scottish Arts Club, he was well known for his work with the Boys’ Brigade. His relief portrait of Robert Louis Stevenson at Canonmills, Edinburgh, appears to be the only recorded example of his output as a sculptor.
