Born in New York City, Robert Weir became more recognized for his teaching of art than his own paintings. As a youngster, he was befriended by painter John Wesley Jarvis and also received instruction from Robert Cooke, an English heraldic* artist. When he was a teenager, Weir's painting was so remarkable that his canvases sold in New York as the work of the Old Masters*.

From 1824 to 1827, he studied in Italy and in 1825 he worked with Pietro Benvenuti in Florence. Later he moved to Rome (showing 500 of 5420 characters).
