Paul Dougherty, (1877-1947) Marine Painter, 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 an art career instead. Dougherty studied diligently, entering the Art Students League and continuing in London, Paris, Munich, Florence and Venice. Dougherty returned to America 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, Dougherty continued painting marines and rugged coastal scenes that had made him a famous artist in the east. More on Paul Dougherty
