Art at Noon: The Most Perfect Manner, Paul Weber’s American Landscapes



After immigrating to Philadelphia in 1848, German-born artist Paul Weber (1823-1916) became one of the leading Hudson River School painters of his time. A proponent of outdoor sketching, he taught a number of students, including Edward Moran and William Trost Richards. Using Weber’s 1856 Landscape: Evening, University of Delaware Phd student Thomas Busciglio will explore the career of this lesser-known transatlantic figure.
