Jerry Weiss (artist)
Jerry Weiss (born October 21, 1959) is an American figurative, landscape, and portrait painter and a writer. He studied classical drawing, and his career has centered on both the figure (usually from activity studies), and landscape (often painted in the outdoors). He says he is "intrigued by the portrait and figure as a most sacred subject."
Weiss' paintings are held in such collections as the New Britain Museum of American Art and the Harvard Club of New York. He is a contributing editor of The Artist's Magazine, for which he writes a "Master Class" feature behind an overview of passÐ¹ masters. He is the son of the comic book player Morris Weiss.
