CONTACT US SKU#: 120373 US Shipping $60 + insurance. BIOGRAPHY: Carl Philipp Weber was born in Darmstadt, Germany in 1849, probably late in the year.

His father, a musician and music teacher, was also named Carl; he was the older brother of Paul Weber, a well-known artist who had earlier settled in Philadelphia and lived there with his family, which included a son, Carl, born Oct. 18, 1850.Having the same name, being of nearly the same age, and both being landscape artists who lived and worked in Philadelphia for much of their lives, the Weber cousins have bedeviled auction catalog makers and art gallery biography writers, who have been unable to keep the two separate. Hence many paintings done by Carl Philipp are credited to his cousin Carl, and vice-versa. Occasionally brief biographical notes put one or the other in the wrong Weber family. The confusion would be less if signatures on the paintings done by each were examined, since they are quite distinct. Both worked with oil paints and watercolors, but the impression given by a review of auction listing illustrations is that many more of Carl Weber’s watercolors come to market than those of Carl Philipp Weber, based on an assessment of the paintings and the attached signatures rather than the attributions in the listings.The family of Carl Philipp Weber seems to have stayed put once they reached Philadelphia (although Carl Philipp spent time studying painting in Europe), but sometime before 1870, probably in 1861, Paul Weber moved back to Germany, where his son Carl studied with various artists in addition to his father, before returning alone in the 1870s to Philadelphia to live and work until his death on January 25, 1921 (catalog listings, etcetera often give the year as 1922, which was the year that his cousin, Carl Philipp, died, on Dec. 12, outliving his cousin Carl by about 2 years).There are many auction and gallery listings for Charles Philipp Weber, with the same birth and death years as are commonly given (though not accurately) for Carl Philipp Weber. The paintings referenced show that Charles P. and Carl P. is the same person. All of the many listings on the internet indicate that the works shown as for Charles were signed C. Philipp Weber or C. Ph. Weber. None were signed with Charles. How this phantom was created is a mystery. However, there is in the 1860 U.S. Census records, as one of the children of Paul Weber, the father of Carl, a child of the right age but shown as Charles (name errors for children are common in census records). Given the confusion in keeping these two cousins straight, perhaps someone decided that Charles was the name of one of the two cousins. To add to that confusion, Paul Weber was not the father of Carl Philipp Weber. Paul’s brother Carl, the musician/music teacher, was the father of Carl Philipp Weber. It is safe to say that Charles Philipp Weber is nothing more than an unfortunate but well-embedded error.In summary, Carl Philipp Weber was the son of Carl Weber, a musician and music teacher. He was born in 1849 (in Darmstadt, Germany) and died on December 12, 1922. Carl Weber was the son of Paul Weber, an artist. He was born on Oct. 18, 1850 (in Philadelphia, PA) and died on January 25, 1921. An artist named Charles Philipp Weber never existed.

Given the confusion in keeping these two cousins straight, perhaps someone decided that Charles was the name of one of the two cousins. To add to that confusion, Paul Weber was not the father of Carl Philipp Weber. Paul’s brother Carl, the musician/music teacher, was the father of Carl Philipp Weber.

CONTACT US SKU#: 120255 US Shipping $90 + insurance. BIOGRAPHY: Carl Philipp Weber was born in Darmstadt, Germany in 1849, probably late in the year. As an infant in 1853 he accompanied his parents to the United States, where they settled in Philadelphia. His father, a musician and music teacher, was also named Carl; he was the older brother of Paul Weber, a well- known artist who had earlier settled in Philadelphia and lived there with his family, which included a son, Carl, born Oct. 18, 1850. Having the same name, being of nearly the same age, and both being landscape artists who lived and worked in Philadelphia for much of their lives, the Weber cousins have bedeviled auction catalog makers and art gallery biography writers, who have been unable to keep the two separate. Hence many paintings done by Carl Philipp are credited to his cousin Carl, and vice-versa. Occasionally brief biographical notes put one or the other in the wrong Weber family. The confusion would be less if signatures on the paintings done by each were examined, since they are quite distinct.

CONTACT US BIOGRAPHY: Born in Owings Mill, Md., Joseph Sheppard attended the Maryland Institute College of Art from 1946-52 before traveling to Florence, Italy in 1957 where he worked and trained through a Guggenheim Traveling Fellowship award. His work was shown at the Peale Museum when that historic site in Baltimore was still open to the public. Sheppard has won international acclaim and his work is part of a number of permanent collections nationwide and in Italy. Sheppard divides his time between Maryland and the region of Tuscany in Italy in a town called Pietrasanta, which is home to sculptors, quarries and bronze foundries. Joseph Sheppard works within a realist tradition that recalls the style of the Renaissance masters. Sheppard has written his credo as follows: "I believe that technical skill is still an important element in art. I believe that there is no object to non-objective, that minimal is less, that junk sculpture is junk and form in painting relates to the illusion of three dimensions. My art is based on the return to those standards which demand the knowledge of composition, perspective, color, three dimensional form, draftsmanship and anatomy." (Sheppard, Joseph Sheppard: 50 Years of Art, Arti Grafiche Giorgi & Gambi, Firenze, Italy, 2001, p. 5). He attended the Maryland Institute College of Art when Baltimore was becoming a center for realism in art due to the appointment of Jacques Maroger, who was encouraged to come to the U.S. from Paris by patron Alice Warder Garrett, mistress of the historic Evergreen House. Maroger arrived in 1939 in New York City, where he taught at the Art Students League, then was brought to Baltimore in 1940 by Alice Garrett to meet president of MICA, Hans Schuler, Sr. Soon thereafter, Maroger begin teaching there. Joseph Sheppard began studying and painting under Maroger in the late 1940s, and never painted abstractly again. Key influences on Sheppard during this time included a focus on draftsmanship, the human figure as subject and the principles of classical art, which were all signs of his allegiance to Maroger's teaching. The Baltimore Realist group grew to include Reginald Marsh, one of America's great genre painters. Curator Cindy Kelly wrote, "Marsh's social realism led Sheppard to realize the value of combining the human figure within scenes of Baltimore urban life, for which he became so well known soon thereafter." (Kelly, Joseph Sheppard: 50 Years of Art, p. 8) Sheppard's earliest subject matter included life in the black ghettos and strip joints along Baltimore's famous Block. Even as a student, Sheppard sold work, and by 1957, only five years after graduating from MICA, he had won a Guggenheim Fellowship for study a year abroad in Paris and Italy and had one-man shows in Paris, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia and New York. Despite such successes and popularity in Baltimore, the "Six Realists" opened a gallery in protest of being excluded from The Baltimore Museum of Art regional exhibition; 2,000 people attended the protest show. Sheppard has created a significant body of work in the diverse forms of oil paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings but is perhaps best known as a painter. His work portrays subject matter ranging from portraits of President George Herbert Walker Bush which hangs in Bush Library in Houston, U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski and Maryland Mayor William Donald Schaefer to still-lifes and genre paintings. Specific Maryland-related scenes depict Monroe Street in Baltimore at the Coliseum (The Fighter), Martick's, a bar in Baltimore that was a speakeasy in Baltimore during Prohibition and Football (2001), which depicts the Ravens football team in the middle of a play. Sheppard spoke about his being an avid football fan in the late 1950s and early 60s when football and the Baltimore Colts were extremely popular among Baltimoreans. The composition of the work was based on a Rubens copy of da Vinci's missing drawing for a huge battle scene mural in which da Vinci placed the viewer in the middle of the battlefield. Sheppard wrote, "...thousands of miles from Baltimore and the NFL, I did a finished drawing that would later become the painting Football." Sheppard's murals decorate the walls of a number of Maryland institutions, including the Baltimore Police Department (1975) and the Peabody Court Hotel (1987). In Chicago, he completed seven murals at the Palmer House Hotel (1989). He has also created bronze sculptures, including Baltimore's Holocaust Memorial (1988), which consists of a 15-foot sculpture, and a life-size sculpture of St. Francis of Assisi at St. Joseph's Hospital (1992) in Baltimore. Joseph Sheppard's work is in the collections, among others, of the Archdiocese of Baltimore (Maryland); Butler Institute of American Art,Youngstown, Ohio; the Davenport Municipal Art Gallery, Davenport, Iowa; the Arizona Museum of Art, Tucson; the Columbus Museum of Fine Arts, Ohio; the Westmoreland Museum of Art, Greensburg, Pennsylvania; the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences, Virginia; The Baltimore Museum of Art; Bookgreen Gardens Museum of American Sculpture, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina; Fine Arts Museum of the South, Mobile, Alabama; New Britain Museum of Art, Connecticut; Carnegie Institute Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Malcolm Forbes Collection, New York, New York; Maryland State House; University of Maryland University College; and the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, Hagerstown, Maryland. Internationally, his work is represented in the Musco Dei Bozzetti Di Pietrasanta in Italy. Throughout his long career, Sheppard has also been an instructor in anatomical drawing, and produced a number of books about drawing the human figure, rendering color and texture and a guide for still life compositions.

BIOGRAPHY: Carl Philipp Weber was born in Darmstadt, Germany in 1849, probably late in the year. As an infant in 1853 he accompanied his parents to the United States, where they settled in Philadelphia. His father, a musician and music teacher, was also named Carl; he was the older brother of Paul Weber, a well- known artist who had earlier settled in Philadelphia and lived there with his family, which included a son, Carl, born Oct. 18, 1850. Having the same name, being of nearly the same age, and both being landscape artists who lived and worked in Philadelphia for much of their lives, the Weber cousins have bedeviled auction catalog makers and art gallery biography writers, who have been unable to keep the two separate. Hence many paintings done by Carl Philipp are credited to his cousin Carl, and vice-versa. Occasionally brief biographical notes put one or the other in the wrong Weber family. The confusion would be less if signatures on the paintings done by each were examined, since they are quite distinct. Both worked with oil paints and watercolors, but the impression given by a review of auction listing illustrations is that many more of Carl Weber’s watercolors come to market than those of Carl Philipp Weber, based on an assessment of the paintings and the attached signatures rather than the attributions in the listings. The family of Carl Philipp Weber seems to have stayed put once they reached Philadelphia (although Carl Philipp spent time studying painting in Europe), but sometime before 1870, probably in 1861, Paul Weber moved back to Germany, where his son Carl studied with various artists in addition to his father, before returning alone in the 1870s to Philadelphia to live and work until his death on January 25, 1921 (catalog listings, etcetera often give the year as 1922, which was the year that his cousin, Carl Philipp, died, on Dec. 12, outliving his cousin Carl by about 2 years). There are many auction and gallery listings for Charles Philipp Weber, with the same birth and death years as are commonly given (though not accurately) for Carl Philipp Weber. The paintings referenced show that Charles P. and Carl P. is the same person. All of the many listings on the internet indicate that the works shown as for Charles were signed C. Philipp Weber or C. Ph. Weber. None were signed with Charles. How this phantom was created is a mystery. However, there is in the 1860 U.S. Census records, as one of the children of Paul Weber, the father of Carl, a child of the right age but shown as Charles (name errors for children are common in census records). Given the confusion in keeping these two cousins straight, perhaps someone decided that Charles was the name of one of the two cousins. To add to that confusion, Paul Weber was not the father of Carl Philipp Weber. Paul’s brother Carl, the musician/music teacher, was the father of Carl Philipp Weber. It is safe to say that Charles Philipp Weber is nothing more than an unfortunate but well-embedded error. In summary, Carl Philipp Weber was the son of Carl Weber, a musician and music teacher. He was born in 1849 (in Darmstadt, Germany) and died on December 12, 1922. Carl Weber was the son of Paul Weber, an artist. He was born on Oct. 18, 1850 (in Philadelphia, PA) and died on January 25, 1921. An artist named Charles Philipp Weber never existed.
