Curt Querner (1904–1976) was a German painter.


Querner was born in Börnchen, a village in Saxony not far south of Dresden (later incorporated into Possendorf, which today is part of Bannewitz).[1] The son of a shoemaker, he trained in metalworking and worked for a time as a factory mechanic (Fabrikschlosser).[2]

From 1926 to 1930 Querner studied at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts. He exhibited for the first time at the Galerie Junge Kunst, of Józef Sandel, in Dresden.[2]
