Weir Farm 1

Weir Farm is the preserved site of the home, studios and barns of three generations of American painters, beginning with Julian Alden Weir—referred to as the ‘father’ of American Impressionism. As the home of artists and the summer retreat for their friends—who were themselves the cream of the east coast artistic elite of the 20th century—the site was determined to be of national historical and cultural significance and is now owned by and maintained by the National Park Service.

This is the first of two posts, the second is here.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

  1. Two great posts. I guess that it used to be a lively place with all the artists and everything. I just imagine all the conversations, and fun, and creativeness, and passions…

    • It is such a beautiful spot. I am so looking forward to returning there for a full sunny Autumn day! It was wonderful!

    • Again, thank you so much! It was a difficult shoot…mostly because I wanted to use a wide open lens to get as much in as I could, and I am still not used to it yet. It’s such a beautiful spot…I wish everyone could go there to experience it in person.
