Sadly, there are not many original paintings of J. Alden at Weir Farm, because following his death his collection went to Brigham Young University, the only institution who would take the collection in its entirety. However, there is an original painting of his daughter inside the lid of his paintbox. For J. Alden Weir, this must have been the equivalent of having a snapshot of his child in his wallet or on his cellphone!
