John Ferguson Weir
exuberant brushwork
and brilliant colors artfully infused
with the light one would expect from
a Hudson River School painter.  
Weir's affinity for the Highlands
is combined with a poet's
romantic sense of nature.

This find rendering calls to mind
two other works by Weir (1841-1926), 

View of the Hudson Highland
From West Poin

and Figure Overlooking West Point.
 It's plausable that Weir may 
have painted the three scenes

as a series or ensemble.

The proposed idea

has been understandably mentioned 

in connection with the iconic site in

all three paintings.

  • A poetic depiction that is characteristics of Weir's works, View of the Hudson Highland From West Point and Figure Overlooking West Point. It's plausible that Weir may have painted the three scenes as a series or ensemble (Weir painted at least five different versions of East Rock). This proposed idea is based on a perceived similarity in the style, composition, and an excellent quality of light.  More importantly, the idea is supported by the iconic site in the all three paintings. A place of respite or such, Weir had an affinity for the area and often visited for inspiration. it's plausible that he was inspired to document the site not only from different point of the compass but also at different
    time of the year.
