Generous donations enabled Durand-Hedden to purchase a 19th century folk-art portrait of Durand painted by an untrained artist, based on an 1845 daguerreotype portrait. It will be hung in the parlor along with works by Durand.
Cyrus Durand Chapman (1856-1918), an artist, photographer and architect, was the grandson of Cyrus Durand and the nephew of Henry and Asher B. Durand.
