By artist J. Alden Weir (1852-1919), in a Private Collection
With a look so haunting that the artist's work influenced even writer Edgar Allen Poe, a young woman commands the canvas in an expertly measured composition that balances tonal hue with controlled brushwork. A founding member of the Ten American Painters, American-born Weir studied in New York and Paris, concentrating on portraits, figural work and still lifes. He is credited with starting the first academic art program on an American university campus. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.
