Carl Emil Otto Weber was a German genre and landscape painter. He was one of the first to paint in the Breton village of Pont-Aven which later developed into an artists’ colony. Weber studied under Carl Steffeck in Berlin and Thomas Couture in Paris. In 1863–64, he travelled to Brittany where he painted genre works giving a romantic view of day-to-day life. In 1864, he exhibited his first painting at the Paris Salon: Noce à Pont-Aven exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1864. It was the first to be inspired by the village of Pont-Aven which subsequently became famous for its colony of artists. He continued to exhibit at the Paris Salon until 1869. His La curée du chevreuil (1868) is now in the Musée d’Orsay. As a result of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, he had to leave France, travelling to Italy where he stayed in Rome in 1871. In 1872, he moved to London at the request of Queen Victoria whereafter he exhibited annually at the Royal Academy from 1874 to 1888.
