A Life Gone By
John DeCuir Sr. created some of the most inspired artwork of Hollywood’s golden age. From his earliest films in the 1940's to later works like Ghostbusters in 1984, DeCuir's designs and artwork helped guide these classic films to completion.
In his career, DeCuir earned 11 Oscar nominations and three awards for his work on The King and I, Cleopatra, and Hello Dolly!. The DeCuir Gallery’s purpose is to showcase his artwork and to educate future generations in Art and Production Design. Learn how to create a narrative environment by exploring his legacy.
