Rare Light

J. Alden Weir in Windham, Connecticut, 1882–1919

Edited by Anne E. Dawson
Chronicling the artist’s life in Connecticut’s “Quiet Corner”

Review

“As time passes, we can choose to look or turn away, but if we are intrigued, we study them and can understand history and its links to our present, and are all the better for it. That is what this book does.”—A.C.V., Maine Antique Digest

Endorsement

"Rare Light adds granular context and interpretation for one of America's leading impressionist artists. Within a growing body of distinguished literature on American art, the volume sparkles with rich historical detail and fresh archival research. As editor and lead author, Anne Dawson makes a meaningful contribution to our knowledge of American impressionism through the lens of a finely focused study."—Patricia McDonnell, Director, Wichita Art Museum

"This is the book we've been waiting for. While J. Alden Weir's home in Branchville, Connecticut, is well known, no in-depth study has been devoted to his life and work in Windham. This volume meets that need with insightful essays about Weir's beloved Windham home, studio, family, friends, and subject matter."

—Susan G. Larkin, author of The Cos Cob Art Colony: Impressionists on the Connecticut Shore

"Anne Dawson's study of J. Alden Weir in Windham, Connecticut, is richly researched and documented. Long overdue, it is a significant contribution to scholarship on both Weir and American Impressionism."

—Marian Wardle, editor and coauthor of The Weir Family, 1820–1920: Expanding the Traditions of American Art
