Durr Friedley (later changed to Freedley) was the curator of the New York Metropolitan Musuem of Art. He was both artist, designer, and sought-after visual arts consultant to a number of prominent people of his age. He left the MET in 1917 and was replaced by John Brock. Durr worked extensively with the famous Robert de Forest in creating the American Wing of the MET. He designed all of the fittings, textiles, and one stained glass window of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at St. John the Evangelist in Newport Rhode Island. I am currently working on an exhibit featuring some of his designs from our chapel at Holy Cross Worchester, MA. He was associated with some of the greatest artists and architects of his age.
