Weaver Colloquy


The back-and-forth on the merits and sources of Robert Weaver's work and reputation has been excellent in recent days. Soon I hope to have a chance to provide some context for those exchanges, both visually and historically. So stay tuned... And keep the comments coming!

Great Piece!

I have seen the drawings for this piece and series. The man worked in every medium.

I love the separation of the police from the scene and the use of space on the page. Again, so much with so little. It reminds me of a piece he did of a police car with two cops in it. The title referred to a city divided over the police. It was simple and spoke volumes.

Do you have the soldiers in a tree image I mentioned in an earlier post?
