Biography George Durrie
The son of George Henry Durrie, George Boice Durrie followed in his father's footsteps, painting winter scenes in the countryside outside New Haven, Connecticut. George Boice grew up in New Haven and enlisted in the First Company New Haven Grays in 1862, which later became the Connecticut 27th Regiment. The following year he was captured by Confederate forces at the battle of Chancellorsville, was shortly held at Libby Prison in Richmond, and was finally released in Annapolis.
He married after the war, and his first of six children was born in 1870. In 1872 he moved from New Haven to New York City, where he practiced as a physician. He continued to paint into the 1890s, as an 1894 letter to a New York art dealer attests.
