CURTIS, Calvin, artist, born in Stratford, Connecticut, 5 July 1822. He studied art in the National academy in 1841, and also under Daniel Huntington. After painting portraits in New York for some years, he went to Bridgeport, Connecticut, in 1850, and afterward to Stratford. His works include portraits of Chief-Justice Thomas B. Butler, General W. U. Noble, Judge C. B. Beardsley, and Rev. Dr. Nathaniel Hewitt. Mr. Curtis has also given some time to landscape-painting. He has suffered from a spinal disease for thirty years, and it has been said that "every touch of his pencil has been attended with a twinge of nervous pain."
