A 3-generation collection of American art

Exhibition Website

This is an ongoing exhibition of the collection.

Weir Farm was home to three generations of American artists. Julian Alden Weir (1852-1919), a leading figure in development of American Impressionism, acquired the farm in 1882. After Weir, his daughter, painter Dorothy Weir Young (1890- 1947) and her sculptor-husband, Mahonri Young (1877-1957), maintained the tradition, followed in turn by painters Sperry and Doris Andrews. 

A collection-only site, the first generation collection includes artwork by Julian Alden Weir, John Ferguson Weir, John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, John Henry Twachtman, Albert Pinkham Ryder and Dorothy Weir. Additionally, Weir Farm holds works by Dorothy Weir Young and Mahonri Mackintosh Young, as well as locally-inspired artwork by Doris Andrews and Sperry Andrews.
