Thanks Christopher, yes John Benson is well-known to me- and his studio on Thames St. He did the altar cross and candlesticks for the Church of St. John, the High Altar- Durr worked in the chapel designs. I have uncovered more and am putting up a webpage for Durr Freedley. The Seaman's Church Institute on the wharf in Newport has his lovely chapel- very art-deco, in its original state and I have photographed it extensively. Also his painting of the ruins of Vaucluse mansion are at the Green Animal Farm in the Brayton House. Trinity Chapel in NYC is sending me information about his work there. It is my intention to "rediscover" this multi-talented man! I will be in touch.
