Theodore Alexander Weber (1838 – 1907) was born in Leipzig, Germany and died in Paris, France. He was a German painter who took the French nationality in 1878.

He became a student of Wilhelm Krause in 1854 in Berlin. He subsequently went to Paris in 1856 to continue his studies with Eugene Isabey.

In 1858 he participated in the “Salon” and in 1868 his painting “Le Sauvetage à l’entree du Treport” was remarked for its qualities. That same year he participated in the international maritime exposition at Le Havre and won the bronze medal.

In 1870 and 1871, during the French-German war, he went to live in exile at London and then Brussels. He came back to live in Paris and in 1878 he took the French citizenship.
