As a professional painter Jacob began his career before the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. He belonged to that generation of intelligentsia mature enough to capture on canvass the mood of the new social and cultural order developing in Russia during that period. His life took him to great heights and utter depths, and is reflected in his passion for art. In later years, Weber studied in Moscow at workshop-studios of Constantine Korovin at the Penza Art College. From 1902 to 1909, Weber became a student of painting at the St. Petersburg Academy of Applied Arts. He was a constant participant of all art exhibitions, repeatedly won art awards. His works were successfully exhibited in Europe; the artist even opened his own private school of art. However, World War I put an end on his career: being German by origin the artist had a hard time.

From that time, his all-consuming passion became the theme of the "Highway of Russia" - the Volga. The river is portrayed in his paintings reflecting all its glorious diversity: in stillness, calm, storms, morning light, evening dusk, afternoon balm, enlivened with movement of numerous ships, barges, boats and at rest from all activity both in the twilight or sunrise.
