American painter; born at Mühlen, Württemberg, in 1840. At the age of fifteen he went to the United States, but returned to Europe to study art. His home is now (1905) in Washington, D. C., where he is a member of the Society of Washington Artists and of the Washington Water Color Club. Weyl's specialty is landscape-painting, and his work shows sympathy with the moods of nature. He was awarded the first prize at the exhibition of the Society of Washington Artists in 1891, has exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York, and is represented in the Corcoran Gallery of Washington by a landscape entitled "Approaching Night." He was a protégé of Salvador de Mendonca, formerly Brazilian minister at Washington, and four of his paintings were in the Mendonca collection.
