Julian Alden Weir(30 august 1852 – 8 decembrie 1919) a fost un pictor impresionist american, membru al Cos Cob Art Colony de langa Greenwich, Connecticut. Weir si unul dintre artistii grupului The Ten. Weir s-a nascut si a crescut in West Point, New York, fiul lui Robert Walter Weir, un profesor de desen. Fratele lui mai mare, John Ferguson Weir, de asemenea era pictor peisagist care picta in stilurile scolilor Hudson River si Barbizon. Julian Weir s-a pregatit la National Academy of Design, apoi la École des Beaux-Arts din Paris in 1873. In Franta a studiat sub indrumarea renumitului pictor francez  Jean-Léon Gérôme si s-a imprietenit cu Jules Bastien-Lepage. De asemenea, Weir a intalnit impresionismul pentru prima oara si a reactionat puternic: "Niciodata in viata mea nu am vazut ceva mai oribil...Nu se observa forma desenului, insa se da impresia a ceea ce se numeste natura. E mai rau decat in camera ororilor."
Weir l-a cunoscut pe James McNeill Whistler in Londra inainte de-a se reintoarce la New York City in 1877. Lucrarile lui ca tanar artist se centrau pe natura statica si figuri umane pe care le reda intrun stil realist care nu se deosebea de cel a lui Édouard Manet. In anii 1880 Weir s-a mutat in zona rurala din Ridgefield, Connecticut si si-a intarit relatiile de prietenie cu artistii Albert Pinkham Ryder si John Henry Twachtman. Arta lui Weir si Twachtman era bine-aliniata, iar cei doi pictau si expuneau deseori impreuna. Ambii au predat la Art Students League. Prin 1891 Weir si-a reconciliat  parereile proaste in ceea ce priveste impresionismul si a adoptat propriul lui stil pictand peisaje si lucrari figurative impresioniste, multe dintre ele centrate pe fermele din Connecticut de la Branchville si Windham. Stilul lui a variat de la impresionismul traditional, vibrant pana la un tonalism calm, umbrit. De asemenea a desenat, schitat bine. In 1912 Weir a fost ales primul presedinte al Association of American Painters and Sculptors, apoi a devenit presedinte la National Academy of Design. A murit in 1919.
