Theme/Style Modernism, figurative art
Media Oils, murals
Artistic Focus Comfort was a Modernist who defied categorization. His works reflect an independent mind, and the subject matter of each has little or no relation to the subject matter of any of his other works. His art was bold and could only have evolved even further but for a life cut short at the early age of 30.
• Born in Port Huron, Michigan in 1909, by 1920 Tom Tyrone Comfort had settled in Los Angeles, where he was a pupil of Walter Barron Currier and Leo Katz.
