George Weymouth

George Alexis Weymouth was a prominent realist painter, environmentalist, and philanthropist with a “genuine appreciation for beauty and nature.” After painting in peinture a l’essence—a technique in which oil paints are thinned with turpentine for a pastel-like effect, Weymouth switched to watercolor and egg tempera for his portraits and landscapes of the Brandywine River Valley, an area southeast of Pennsylvania and northwest of Delaware. Once he finished a tempera painting, he would proceed to create a large watercolor of the rolling hills in front of his property, called Big Bend.
