Biography:

Charles Meer Webb (1830-1895)

Webb was born on 16th July 1830 and studied art at the Academies of Amsterdam, Anvers and Düsseldorf. Webb moved to the latter in 1848 and whilst there he became a pupil of Wilhelm Camphausen. He occasionally worked in Anvers and Cleves but settled and remained largely in Düsseldorf for the majority of his life. He is best known as a painter of genre subjects and some of his most successful and well received paintings were taken from English life and history.

He died in December 1895 from injuries sustained from a fall.
