Robert Walter Weir Paintings

This is a list of all the Robert Walter Weir paintings I was able to find information on. I hope to add a separate page for each painting, as I have more details in my database (and multiple images for many of the paintings). The 'score' column an estimated of the popularity of the painting, based on whether it has been exhibited, referenced in books, auctioned, and so forth. I hope to elaborate on the score in the future.

You can find the main Robert Walter Weir page here.

Note that you can sort by column by clicking on the column header (e.g. "Date").

Image of art Artist's View from West Point
View from West Point
  Oil on canvas 22x30 Attributed. Private Collection (1976) 60     Inscribed on verso: 'Professor Robt Weir – view from West Point'. This work is described in the exhibition catalogue Robert Weir: Artist and Teacher of West Point (p. 37) as follows: 'This scene, probably looking north from atop Crow's Nest, a hill north of West Point, conveys the idea of a universe uninhabited by man... Weir has executed the painting with very loose brushwork with little emphasis on the detail of anything but the birds and foliage in the foreground. This painterly style asserts the unity found in nature which is undisturbed by man, helping the eye to blend easily the elements of sky, water and land. Weir's Falls of the Kaaterskill is closely allied in spirit with this painting.' Although the exhibition catalogue notes that the painting is inscribed on its verso: Professor Robt Weir - view from West Point, the inscription is no longer visible and may possibly have been obscured by the lining. 3

There is a priest dressed in black garments standing next to the bed with a gold communion cup in his hand. To the left of the priest is an African-American man kneeling beside a chair. He is dressed in a brown coat and gray trousers. Behind him and the priest is a table covered with a red cloth with an additional white cloth on top of it. On the table is the priest's pitcher of communion wine and his Bible. In the background is a painting on the wall to the left of a fireplace.
