William Weekes
fl. 1864 - 1904

William Weekes is best known for his genre and animal paintings.  He was born into an artistic family - his father was the sculptor Henry Weekes RA and his elder brother the genre painter, Henry Weekes Jnr.  William Weekes spent his working life in London and he resided at 21 Oppingdon Road, Primrose Hill.

Amongst his favourite subjects were humorous portrayals of animals. Indeed Weekes delighted in personifying them and placing them in situations particular to humans, as seen in the paintings: 'You are sitting in my Nest', 'Prattlers and Cracklers', 'The Patient and the Quacks' and 'A Snap for the Lot'.  However, Weekes' work shows a sensitive understanding of his subject matter and part of his success in creating such a peaceful country atmosphere lies in his affection for it.

 Exhibited : Royal Academy and other major London venues 1865-1904
