George Durrie Paintings
George Durrie, my Greatgrandfather did many rural scenes in New Haven, where his studio was located, and Hartford. Most all of his paintings are signed some were at the bottom of the picture. He has two paintings in the White house in Washington DC. The paintings that Currier & Ives used were of his Snow farm scene. LP MacAdams in Bridgeport, CT still uses some of his prints on their callenders they make for Travelers Insurance. One of his better known prints is Going Home For Thanksgiving.
Currier & Ives/George Durrie
I heard that most of the Currier & Ives winter prints were of rural scenes in Southern New Hampshire. Is Durrie the artist and is this true?
Thanks so much,
