Catalogue Note: Marie Weger was born in Munich, Germany in 1882. She conducted her artistic training under the tutelage of her father, Max Weger, also a painter as well as Wilhelm von Dietz and Paul Nauren. She continued her studies in Paris.
She made her first public appearance in 1907 at the Munich Art Society, and continued to show at the Munich Glaspalast and The Major Exhibit of Berlin, as well as other exhibitions in Vienna and Paris until her emigration to the United States in 1930.
Throughout her career in the United States. she was actively involved with many prestigious galleries and museum organizations including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Allied Artists of America and the Kennedy Galleries in New York City.
