(Box 7, OV 12, 14, 15; 0.2 linear feet)

This series includes sketches, a cartoon of Curry, and test canvases. Four sketches are found by John Steuart Curry, including one small watercolor sketch of corn, and a sketch of what appears to be the site of his mural in the Wisconsin Law Library.
Seven test canvases, two of them dated 1941, are annotated with notes regarding the materials used for the various colors and grounds represented.
Additional sketches are found in Subject Files, and in Curry's childhood scrapbook in Print Materials. Scattered illustrated letters from Curry can also be found in Family Correspondence.
