J. Alden Weir was an American painter in the mid-19th and early-20th centuries. After journeying to Europe, Weir returned to The East Coast with an Impressionist style. Finding American visual culture too conservative, he founded a group called The Ten along with two other East Coast artists. The Ten sought to promote innovation in American art and valued originality over conformity. Weir later went on to become the president of the National Academy of Design.
