Many of the paintings of American artist George Henry Durrie (1820-1863) have a familiar look, for several of his winter scenes were reproduced by Currier & Ives as lithographic prints. Basically self-taught, he began as a portrait painter; but in the 1840s he developed an interest in the Connecticut landscapes around him. Currier & Ives printed four of his works between 1860 and 1863, and they issued 6 additional prints after his death.

“Winter in the Country: A Cold Morning” is rural Americana, the essence of mid 19th-century winter with an inn, a sleigh at the door and a conversation, an approaching man, a woman fetching water from the well, the feeding of chickens at the barn and a man with hay on a pitchfork for the livestock. The sky is overcast and dark, yet the scene is not a bleak winter scene; Durrie paints a scene bustling with activity and brightened by the yellow inn. The painting located at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia, dates from 1861 and is oil on canvas.
