A marine painter, Paul Dougherty was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 6, 1877. Dougherty graduated from Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute in 1896. He then studied law and passed the New York State Bar examinations in 1898. However, having been artistically inclined from an early age, he chose an art career instead of law. His art studies began at the Art Students League in New York City under Robert Henri and continued in London, Paris, Munich, Venice, and Florence. Returning to the United States in 1905, he settled on the coast of Maine and was elected as a member of the National Academy in 1907. Arthritis forced him to seek the milder climate of Arizona in 1928. He was world-famous when he made his final move to California in 1931. After settling on Monterey Peninsula, Dougherty established a studio in his home in Carmel Highlands and spent winters in Palm Springs until his death on January 9, 1947.
