These solid wood shutters and bold, but decorative, hinges, really caught my attention. My father was a chair maker and, as a result, I appreciate the beauty of the grain, texture, and finish of wood.
But, here, it’s more than just that. It’s also the rustic elegance and character of the handmade hinges and bolts. Despite the “hard” impression of the black metal, a softness is suggested by the curves of the fleur-de-lis and kidney bean shapes.
This is the sort of detail and hidden beauty that may escape your view when visiting the eccentrically decorated home of Julian Alden Weir, a leading innovator of American Impressionist painting. This photograph gives you a rare close-up view that cannot be seen during a tour from behind a stanchion.
I can assure you of the stunning clarity and remarkable detail in this print. Many have observed that it almost appears three dimensional.
