Hugh Weiss (1925–2007), an American painter who moved to Paris in 1948, married Sabine Weber in 1950 and spent the rest of his life in the capital. Weiss pursued an independent trajectory while participating in many significant exhibitions. He contributed to the revival of free-form figurative painting, working outside of any conceptual tendencies or groups.
