Wegener is above all a well-known animal painter.
Coming from poor conditions Wegener had to work in the printing industry;
in 1835 a small inheritance enabled him to study at the Dresden Kunstakademie
and from 1840 onwards, his economic situation improved with the sale of a picture to the Saxon Art Society and the support of the King Friedrich August II.
In 1860 Wegener was appointed Saxon court painter.
