This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A student in Paris of Jean Leon-Gerome at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and in Chicago at the Art Institute, Paul Arndt became known for his numerous murals that he completed for steamships, public buildings, and theatres.

He settled in Woodstock, New York and was active there in the Artists Association.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Paul Arndt was one of the Woodstock Impressionists at a time when Depression-Era artists were living outside "The City", meaning away from New York. Many of them were enrolled in the WPA (Works Progress Administration) in the Federal Arts Project. Their popular conceptual works were dubbed "Impressionism", which were sold during the 1930's, 40's and 50's in various venues, mostly in department stores, at prices ranging from $1 to about $10. In today's economy, this amount would be about $50-$350.

Most of these paintings were small, 4" x 6" and slightly larger 8" x 10" and were on cheap "student board" or "canvasboard", which is canvas stretched on and glued to heavy cardboard.

In addition to Arndt, these Woodstock artists included Doris Lee, H. Harvey, Elizabeth Street and Louis Safier. They loaded their paintings from the corner of a tiny breakfast cafe into a "woodie" station wagon on Sunday mornings. They drove them to the Fifth-Avenue Gallery in New York City, where they were sold to the gallery, which then inexpensively framed and distributed the Woodstock Workshop paintings to various retail outlets.
