Artist information:

Alfred Charles Weber is one of the most respected French exponents of the Cardinal School of Painters.

He is famous for his portraits of Cardinals as ‘bon vivant’ characters. Clearly schooled to the highest standards in drawing available to scholars of the Belle Époque period Weber subscribes to the figurative tradition and produced a considerable body of work.

As with his contemporaries François Brunery, Andrea Landini, Jean Georges Vibert en Victor Marias-Milton, Alfred Weber achieved recognition with his highly finished interiors often depicting the Lords of the Catholic Church at unexpected pursuits, these became highly fashionable with the collecting cognoscenti generally and with the Americans in particular. A large number of his works found their way to America at that period. Today his paintings are still very much sought.
