Jean-Baptiste Weyler (1747 Strasburg - 1791 Paris) was a son of Strasburg senator Jean-Daniel Weyler and Maria-Salome, nee Kamm. After studying under brothers Haldenwanger and Redlob (all three were Strasburg artists) he went to Paris. There, from 1763 he became a pupil of J.M. Vien. He soon began specializing in miniature on ivory and enamel, but also did pastels, as well as sketches for his collection of famous French personages. These he never completed on account of his premature death, and they were continued by his wife nineteen years later. At the age of 32 he became on the 25th of September 1779 a member of the Academy of Paris. His presentation piece was the portrait on enamel of Count d'Angiviller, which was acquired by the Louvre for the sum of 3000 francs in 1853. Weyler exhibited at the Salon from 1775 to 1791, amongst others in 1787, an enamel portrait of the painter Francois De Troy, Director of the French Academie in Rome, which is now in the Louvre.
