Period Paper is pleased to offer a collection of limited edition prints from an edition of 712, representing the original paintings of Julian Alden Weir, an American Realist and Impressionist painter. Containing an original photogravure portrait of the artist and exceptionally printed monochrome halftones of WeirÕs paintings and various artistsÕ portraits of Weir, the collection is primarily comprised of figurative and landscape subjects. Weir, a longtime resident of Branchville, Connecticut, largely drew inspiration for his landscape paintings from his own property, which is wonderfully represented in the collection. Though lacking the vibrancy of the WeirÕs original Impressionist paintings, each image exceptionally captures his subdued, nuanced and deft application of shadowy tonalism, a style most often associated with George Inness and James McNeill Whistler. The rare collection offers a unique opportunity to own a distinct representation of the work of an important American artist.
