Weisbach was born on February 8, 1927 in Thionville, Lorraine, northeastern France. In 1957, he held his first solo exhibition at the famous Galerie Saint-Placide in Paris. In 1961, he won the National Critics Award. In 1962, he was invited to exhibit at the O'Hannah Gallery in London. He used minimal colors and smooth lines to create his unique style and brushstrokes, which marked the beginning of his international career as a professional artist. Since then, his reputation has spread far and wide, and his exhibitions have spread all over Europe, the United States, Asia and Japan.

Weisbach is a man of many talents and knowledge. He is keen on studying history, mythology, literature and music, and he also puts these themes into his creations. He is good at depicting people, horses, music and opera scenes and characters. His depiction of body movements shows his extraordinary talent. His most famous theme is undoubtedly the dynamic performance of musicians, especially violinists and cellists. Performers, hunchback harlequins in Italian masquerade, characters in French puppet shows, etc. are all the themes in his paintings. The dynamic body lines are like the protagonist in action, just like the multiple frames under repeated exposure, which become a unique creation. Therefore, he has become one of the most representative artists in contemporary France.

Since 1970, Weisbach has started a long-term cooperative relationship with the famous Tamenaga Gallery in Paris, and was awarded the Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1987. In 2011, the first retrospective exhibition was held in the Orangery of the Palace of Versailles. Many of his works have been collected by many landmark museums around the world, such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the National Library, the National Center for Contemporary Art, the Royal Academy of Arts in Brussels, the Museum of Fine Arts in Lausanne, the Provincial Museum of Fine Arts in Cordoba, Muzej Savremene Umenosti, Muzeum Narodowe in Warsaw, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the National Museum of Fine Arts in Munich, the National Museum of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, etc. His works have been auctioned more than 4,100 times worldwide, most of which are his most famous prints.
