Harry van der Weyden (1868-1952), American
Child's Head, undated
OIL ON CANVAS, 13 x 19 inches
Gift of Mrs. Theodora Willard Best
Very little is known about the Boston-born painter Harry van der Weyden, except that he trained in Paris and spent much of his career painting in rural areas of France and England around the turn of the century. This painting likely depicts a child from one of those two regions.
