Much recent scholarship in American art history and cultural studies examines cross-cultural exchanges in the shaping of American art and culture. This volume contributes to this endeavor by exploring, through seven scholarly essays, how the transatlantic encounters of three of America's most notable nineteenth-century artists helped mold American art. Robert W. Weir (1803-1889) and his sons John F. Weir (1841-1926) and Julian Alden Weir (1852-1919) saw themselves as heirs to European art traditions and repeatedly crossed the Atlantic to connect with their artistic heritage. Yet they lived, painted, and taught in New York and New England, where they were leaders in American art. Robert taught art at West Point, John founded the first academic art program on a U.S. college campus at Yale, and Julian was a major American Impressionist. Their combined works provide a compendium of the painting genres produced in Europe and America across an entire century.
