Julius WEYDE

1822 - 1860

Juius Weyde was a genre painter born in 1822 in Berlin and died 27th February 1860. Weyde was a student of the Berlin Academy and trained in the studio of Professor Wolff between 1843 and 1847, and then in Antwerp under the direction of Vennemann and later in Paris under Horace Vernet and Paul Delaroche. Frightened by the revolution in Paris, he lived again for a short time in Berlin and then went on trips to Salzburg and through the Oesterreichische to Italy, where he stayed for a while in the area of Pola. He was a skilled painter of middle class and the people's life.

Some of his notable genre paintings include "The Jealous", "Grandpa has brought something", "The rural Dinner", "The old convalescent," "The lost child". "Sailor's Return", "Five Album Leaves," "The little envious", "wine tavern in Cervola", "The first school gear", "Grandpa is sleeping" and "The grandparents joy."

His work can be found in Kiel Museum.
