Still Life

Julian A. Weir (American, 1852-1919)


With thick strokes of the brush, Weir suggested the textures of porcelain, fabric, and food.

This assemblage of fruit, vegetables, and tableware is unusual for Weir, who preferred landscapes.

Weir helped form The Ten, a diverse group identified with American Impressionism.
