        Est: $30,000 - $50,000

        DURRIE, George Henry (1820-1863). Untitled, (Rural Fishing Scene). Oil on Canvas. Signed lower left: "Durrie / 1856". 29 1/2" x 24 5/8" canvas, 35 1/4" x 30 1/8" framed. Full write-up by William H. Gerdts avilable upon request. "The single figure of the fisherman functions in many ways in this painting. He not only gives human presence and a bit of activity to an otherwise uninhabited scene, but also confirms the rural nature of the landscape. A small figure, in comparison to the lofty trees on either side, such a contrast exalts the splendor of nature. But in addition, the very act of fishing was a common motif among American painters of the rural landscape; Durrie himself painted several others, though the present work is, for the artist, a particularly sizable example." - Gerdts

        Est: $20,000 - $30,000

        George Henry Durrie (American, 1820-1863) Winter in the Country, A Cold Morning Oil on panel Executed circa 1863. (12 1/2 x 16 in. (31.8 x 40.6cm)) Provenance Pook & Pook Inc., Downington, sale of May 21, 2004, lot 299. Acquired directly from the above sale by the present owner. Footnote: Exhibited "An American View: The Hosek Collection of American Art," Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts, Spring, Texas, August 22 - December 20, 2009. "An American View Revisited: The Hosek Collection of American Art," Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts, Spring, Texas, November 17, 2018 - May 11, 2019. Note Winter in the Country, A Cold Morning is a well-known composition by George Henry Durrie, dating from the end of his career. Several other versions of this painting exist, each bearing the same title derived from a lithograph published by Currier and Ives in 1864. While the first version (now in a private Collection) dates from 1861, Durrie is known to have added details in each variant over the years. In 1862 for example, he repeated the original 1861 composition but replaced the man and dog on the road with an ox sledge and a man walking towards the inn (version now at the Shelburne Museum). This secon version added interest, and proved to be commercially succesful as it led to larger versions of the ox sledge alone. Durrie proceeded to paint the composition several times in this size between 1861 and 1863, and in smaller versions as well - some signed and some unsigned. In all of the versions Durrie produced (some on canvas, others on panel; some larger than others; some signed and others not), the artist kept the bright yellow house with green shutters, the gray barns and surrounding outbuildings, the smattering of chickens, and the towering bare tree, as exemplified in the present work. For another close version of this painting, see for example the version sold at Heritage Auctions, Dallas, on June 10, 2009, lot 77012. According to Martha Hutson-Saxton, the present work was still in Durrie's studio at the time of his death in 1863. That would explain the lack of signature, but also the absence genre details the artist would have integrated into the composition such as figures standing in front of the cottage, smoke coming from the chimney, or white snow dusted throughout the landscape. By the same token, this also means the work was not touched by Durrie's brothers, who were known for finishing his woprk after his death. As Hutson-Saxton states it, the present work realies on "a major composition for the artist," and given the rarity of the artist's work, should still be considered a "treasure" today. Dating from the end of the artist's life, the painting also shows the height of his stylistic development at the time, and can be seen as one of his most telling contributions to native winter landscape painting. We wish to thank Martha Hutson-Saxton for her kind assistance in cataloguing the present lot. Condition report: Frame: 18 3/4 x 22 x 2 1/2 in.

        George Durrie (Connecticut, 1820 - 1863) Oil on canvas laid on board painting of a winter vista with figures. Signed and dated lower left. Sight Size: 17 x 29 in. Overall Size: 25 x 37 in. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, George Durrie was known as the "snowman" because of the many winter scenes he painted. He lived most of his life in New Haven and earned a reputation for rural landscape scenes, especially snow scenes, which he introduced as subject matter in American painting. He began the study of art in New Haven in 1839 with portraitist Nathaniel Jocelyn, and traveled about the Connecticut and New Jersey countryside filling commissions. He also painted still lifes, genre, and scenes from Shakespeare. He is credited with making the discovery that farm landscape scenes are more appealing when they appear to be covered with snow, hence the introduction of the "snowscene" into American painting. His paintings emphasized bleak, snowy wintry scenes of New England.

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, George Durrie was known as the "snowman" because of the many winter scenes he painted.

His paintings emphasized bleak, snowy wintry scenes of New England. At the same time, he was creating snowscenes in the 1860s, Currier and Ives were marketing hand-colored lithographs, and his landscapes matched their formula for pleasant, quiet country motifs. These works brought both him and Currier and Ives much success, and after his death in 1863, they continued to use his paintings for lithographs. Among his most popular prints were Cider Making, Winter in the Country, Getting Ice and Winter Morning.
