Biography (adapted from Odon Wagner Gallery): Joseph Vincent Nicholas Francis Weiss, also remembered as a pioneer of aviation, was born in Paris, France. He later emigrated to England. He lived in Houghton for the rest of his life, becoming a prolific painter of English landscapes, particularly the Sussex countryside, in the Barbizon school style. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and garnered support from patrons in England and, especially, in the United States. His works are in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Falmouth Art Gallery, the Southampton Art Gallery, and the Kirklees Museum.
