This month we celebrate the birthday of artist Dorothy Weir Young.
Dorothy was the only daughter to seriously study art under the direction of her father, the American Impressionist Julian Alden Weir, before attending the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors at the Brooklyn Museum and the National Academy of Design. Over the course of her artistic training, Dorothy became proficient in many mediums including oils, watercolors, and woodblock printing. Much of her artwork captures the beauty of her New England home as well as portraits of friends and loved ones. After years of friendship, Dorothy married Mahonri Young, a prominent painter, sculptor, and grandson of Brigham Young.
