Weir stands as one of America’s prominent and highly recognized American Impressionists. He was a close friend of John Henry Twachtman, Child Hassam and Emil Carlsen. He is known for soft impressionist Connecticut landscape paintings and for his figural works which are quiet and elegant in nature. While he is historically important and is on the avant-garde and early side of our impressionist movement, he has not achieved some of the commercial success that Twachtman and Hassam have seen in the marketplace. The answers are found on his canvases, and this lack of commercial success affords astute and sophisticated buyers with great opportunities, if his works appeal to them.
