GEORGE HENRY DURRIE (b. 1820, Hartford, d. 1863, New Haven), famous for rural landscapesGeorge Henry Durrie

"When we think of the New England countryside Durrie's images inform our sense of what that means, a quiet, peaceful place, old houses, a gentle balance of men and nature. ... Currier and Ives produced 10 of his works in their prints." -- Amy Kurtz Lansing, curator, Florence Griswold Museum, Old Lyme Florence Griswold Museum
