Activity

1875 Verviers
Fourteen views of Verviers published as "Verviers - Album", under the Gilon imprint in 1875. These views were republished by Hayet in the form of a booklet of postcards in 1928. Otto Wegener (° Helsingborg [SE], 20.1.1849; + Paris [F], 4.2.1924) was the son of a German-born trumpeter. He operated in Paris from 1867 and became a leading portraitist for several decades under the trade name "Otto". His stay in Verviers (if indeed this is him) has not yet been documented. A certain O. Wegener operated in Saigon [VN] in the early 1880s, exploiting the back catalogue of topographical and archeological views taken by Emile Gsell (1838 - 1879).
