Julian Alden Weir
American, 1852–1919
Follow

The son of an artist, J. Alden Weir initially painted portraits, figurative works, and still lifes in an established academic style. In 1873, he studied under Jean-Léon Gérôme at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he was influenced by the paintings of James Whistler and Édouard Manet. Having bought a farm in Connecticut and been encouraged by John Henry Twachtman and Theodore Robinson, Weir began painting in a more Impressionist style, adopting its signature loose brushwork, flattened and distorted perspectives, and lighter palette. His landscape works from this period include scenes from throughout New England, including Cos Cob, Connecticut, where he taught a summer painting class. He was one of the founding members of the American Impressionist group the Ten American Painters.
