Biography   Paul Mays


Painter, illustrator, muralist.  Born in Cheswick, PA on Oct. 4, 1887.  After drawing and painting during his childhood, at age 15, Mays began his art studies at the Cheshire Academy in Connecticut.  He further studied at Oberlin College, Hawthorne School in Provincetown, and the Art Students League of New York City under William M. Chase.
His first art exhibition at age 23 in NYC was such a financial success that he was able to further his art studies in Paris at Academies Colarossi and Grande Chaumière, and London's Slade School.

In 1915 he came to San Francisco to assist Albert Herter on murals at the St Francis Hotel and, in that year, visited Carmel where he was to live intermittently for the rest of his life
