What does this painting tell us about the importance of religion in American society?

John Steuart Curry, Baptism in Kansas, 1928.
Oil on canvas, 40 × 50 in. (101.6 × 127 cm).
Whitney Museum of American Art

  1. Who was J.S. Curry?
  2. What is a "baptism"?
  3. What was Kansas like in the 1920s?
  4. Who are the people shown do you think?
  5. Is this a positive depiction of the event?
