Paul Jean Clays biography
Paul Jean Clays was born in Bruges on November 27th 1819. Clays spent several years working at sea before becoming an artist. On moving to Paris, to pursue his ambitions, he became a student of renowned marine artists Baron Gudin and Horace Vernet. Like many marine painters of his generation his style is heavily influenced by the masters of the 17th Century and his subjects often recall that period.

In 1867 he was made Chevalier of the Legion of Honour. He died on February 10th, 1900, in Brussels where he had resided for many years.
