Paul Weber

American, 1823 - 1916
A native of Germany, Paul Weber studied in Frankfurt before immigrating to America in 1848. He settled in Philadelphia, painting idyllic landscapes that combined the precision of his German training with the rich detailing of the Pre-Raphaelites. He began exhibiting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts one year after his arrival and remained a frequent exhibitor throughout his life.
In 1860, Weber returned to his hometown of Darmstadt to work as the court painter to the Grand Duke of Hesse-Darmstadt. He later moved back to Philadelphia, where he worked as an art instructor and showed his paintings at the National Academy of Design, the Boston Athenaeum, and the Paris Salon. His work was carried on by his students, which include such notable artists as Edward Moran, William Trost Richards, and William Stanley Haseltine, and his paintings are now featured in The Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Timken Museum of Art in San Diego, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
