From the very first his art was that of an individualist, a man going his own way.
Lloyd Goodrich, director of the Whitney Museum, Congressional Record, 1972


Harold Weston, a modernist painter whose outsized zest for life powered his art, painted in Persia, the Adirondack mountains, French Pyrenees, Greenwich Village, and the Isle of Rhodes.  Weston’s prodigious output arcs from the expressionist Adirondack landscapes first shown at the Montross Gallery (1922), to the New Deal murals with graphic depictions of Federal construction (1936-38), and, lastly, to the gouache abstracts known as the Stone Series (1968-72).

The Harold Weston Foundation, a repository of Harold Weston’s artwork and archival material, is open to collaboration with institutions and scholars in an effort to promote a greater understanding of the artist’s art and life. next page>
