Barrie Landry Will Sell Private Collection of Hudson River School Paintings to Benefit Refugee Organizations

Barrie Landry and the Landry Family, longtime generous supporters and champions of RefugePoint, will sell a private collection of Hudson River School paintings to benefit philanthropies that support the global refugee crisis, including UNICEF, RefugePoint, and The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights. The paintings, from the Collection of Kevin and Barrie Landry, will be offered by Christie’s in the American Art sale on November 20 in New York.

Artists include Frederic Edwin Church, Asher Brown Durand, George Henry Durrie, Sanford Robinson Gifford, David Johnson, and John Kensett, among others. Comprised of 13 lots, the collection is expected to realize in excess of $2,000,000.

Speaking about the decision to donate auction proceeds to support the global refugee crisis, Barrie remarks, “Our country was founded on the principle of E pluribus Unum, out of many one. Our country’s diversity and welcoming of others has made us strong and will continue to make America strong.”

RefugePoint is extremely grateful for Barrie Landry’s longtime support of RefugePoint and the global refugee crisis and we commend her for her innovative philanthropic efforts.
