George Henry Durrie

George Henry Durrie (June 6, 1820 – October 15, 1863) was an American artist whose rural winter scenes became popular when reproduced as lithographic prints by Currier and Ives.


He was born in Hartford, Connecticut. In his teens the self-taught artist painted portraits in the New Haven area. In 183he received artistic instruction from Nathaniel Jocelyn, a local engraver and portrait painter. After 184he settled in New Haven, but made painting trips to New Jersey, New York, and Virginia. Around 1850, he began painting genre scenes of rural life, as well as the winter landscapes that became popular when Currier and Ives published them as lithographs. Four prints were published between 1860 and the artist's death in New Haven in 1863; six additional prints were issued posthumously.


Collections holding paintings by Durrie include the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the White House.
