This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Paul Dougherty became a widely-known painter of dramatic marine scenes and desert landscapes although his family hoped he would become a lawyer.

Following his father who was an attorney, he graduated from Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute in 1896 and New York Law School in 1898. But he changed professions to art and studied with Robert Henri and in Europe for five years from 1900 to 1905.

Paul Dougherty then painted along the coast of Maine, and his paintings were compared to those of Winslow Homer. Of his success, John Sloan said: "Everything came to him; all his pictures sold, he won all the prizes. The rich delighted to honor him, and his wives were glamorous" (Falk).

In 1907, he was elected a Member to the National Academy of Design in New York. He experimented with sculpture but settled on marine paintings, primarily focused on the ocean. Arthritis forced him to seek a milder climate, and in 1928, he began spending his winters in Arizona where he painted desert landscapes and mountains. In 1931, he moved to the Monterey Peninsula in California.

His work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Joslyn Museum in Omaha; and the Fort Worth Museum in Texas as well as many other museums.

Biography from William A. Karges Fine Art - Carmel:
Paul Dougherty was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1877. Following in his father’s footsteps, Dougherty was trained as a lawyer. Though he passed the New York Bar Exam in 1898, he never practiced law, choosing a career in art instead.

Dougherty studied diligently, entering the Art Students League, and continuing in London, Paris, Munich, Florence, and Venice. Dougherty returned to the states in 1905, and 2 years later was elected to the National Academy of Design.

Seeking a milder climate, Dougherty moved to Carmel and Palm Springs in 1931. Dividing his time between the two homes, he continued painting marines and rugged coastal scenes that had made him a famous artist in the east.
