Winter in the Country -A Cold Morning
George Durrie spent most of his life in Connecticut and was known as the snowman because he painted so many winter scenes. The popularity of these scenes, especially snow in farm landscapes, introduced the snowscene into American 19th century painting.
This print, produced after a painting of the same name now in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, was among one of the most popular that Currier & Ives marketed. The quiet scene of rural America remained successful years after Durrie's death in 1863.
