Title Farmyard in Winter
Medium oil on canvas
Dimensions 66 × 91.8 cm (26 × 36.1 in)
Washington, D.C., United States

Notes from Kloss, William, et al. Art in the White House: A Nation's Pride. Washington, D.C.: The White House Historical Association, 2008:
"Farmyard in Winter is a large painting with a solid structure to match. The sloping roof of the saltbox house points toward the tops of a pair of great trees . . . . They are the central focus. The barn and the snowcapped cones of hay anchor the composition at the left. Together with the tree and rocks in the right foreground, they fix the limits of the space, enclosing the heart of the farm and leaving only a small protected entrance. . . .

"The sense of composure--of an implicit pact between man and nature--that suffuses Farmyard in Winter is not a reflection of the reality of 1858, of an industrialized America. . . .

" . . . Durrie ignored the crowded city and chose instead to depict a soundless, self-contained, and nearly anachronistic corner of American life."
