This biography from the Archives of AskART:
William Curtis Elliott is best known as a painter of Southern black Americans at work and at play in various areas of the Levee. In addition he portrayed these people in the world of jazz. Elliott was also a commercial artist, graphic artist and teacher.

He was born in Sedalia, Missouri, moving to Dallas, Texas with his family at an early age. He graduated from high school in Dallas in 1928 and then studied architecture at John Tarleton Agricultural College in Stephenville, Texas. Elliott was a student of Olin Travis and Ruby Stone at the Dallas Art Institute. Prior to World War II, Elliott attended the Art Students League of New York followed by teaching at the Dallas Art institute and working as a commercial artist in Dallas.

Elliott served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II as a staff artist. After the war, he returned to Dallas, Texas to work as a commercial artist until 1967. Following his commercial career, he turned to watercolor painting and continued to reside in Dallas until his death in 2001.

Elliot is a member of the Dallas Artists League; Lone Star Printmakers; Southwestern Watercolor Society; Texas Fine Arts Association and the Texas Watercolor Society.
