Famous Painters of America by J. Walker McSpadden
Writing just 3 years before Weir's death, McSpadden deems Weir one of the "Famous Painters of America," alongside his friends and influences James Whistler, John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, and more.
McSpadden terms Weir the "painter of the personal equation" for his intimate paintings, especially his depictions of domestic rural life at Weir Farm. The author goes on to describe why Weir was famous in life, and in doing so, points to why his story should be preserved.
