Notes

Jarvis Weightman Meirs was born on 12 June 1901 to Richard Waln Meirs (1866-1917) and Anne Walker Weightman (1871-1958). He died in 1930.

Almost certainly painted about 1908. An undated letter in the artist’s papers, written from 1336 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, may refer to this portrait:

‘My dear Mr Muller Ury

I have pleasure in enclosing $2000 and desire to thank you again for the splendid portrait.
Wishing you may have a perfect summer.
Sincerely
RWMeirs’
