Jose Weiss

Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery

Joseph Vincent Nicholas Francis Weiss, known as Jose Weiss,  was born in Paris, France in 1859.  He was the son of John Frederick Weiss and Sylvie Marie Talbot.  After living in France during his childhood, he moved to England and eventually became a naturalized British citizen.  He remained living and painting in Houghton, Sussex for the remainder of his life.

Weiss was a prolific and great painter of English landscapes in the style of the Barbizon School, mostly depicting scenes of the surrounding Sussex countryside.  He exhibited at the Royal Academy and sold his paintings to a wide group of admirers, particularly in the United States. They are on view in galleries and museums in both countries.  Worth noting, he was even better known as a great pioneer of aviation, an interest that he was as passionate about as his painting.
