Rudolf Johann Weisse
(1846 - 1933)
Rudolf Johann Weisse was active/lived in Switzerland. Rudolf Weisse is known for figure and genre painting.
Rudolph Weisse was born in Usti, Bohemia. While he is often confused
with the Swiss Orientalist painter, Johann Rudolf Weiss (1846-1933),
both men have their own distinct styles. According to Bénézit’s
Dictionary of French Artists, Weisse specialized in portraits of
Parisian beauties and Orientalist street scenes of Cairo.
Weisse studied at the Viennese Akademie der Vildenden Künste and
exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1889-1927. His paintings were also
shown in Vienna, London, Bordeaux, and Toulon. He was awarded a Médaille
d’Honneur for his “Scène Orientale” and “Portrait de Femme” at the
Paris Exposition Universelle in 1889 and a gold medal in Vienna in 1920.
