    PAUL RICHARD SCHUMANN (American, 1876-1946)
    Sailboats
    Oil on board
    10 x 8 inches (25.4 x 20.3 cm)
    Signed lower right: Paul R Schumann

    Paul Schumann has been called the interpreter of the true Texas Gulf Coast. He is well known for Impressionistic paintings of boats, recalling the works of Claude Monet. He worked with bright colors and often used a palette knife to add texture and depth to his canvases. Just as his contemporary Julian Onderdonk immortalized the Texas Hill Country, Schumann captured the beauty and essence of the Texas Coast at the beginning of the twentieth century. Born in Germany, Schumann came to Galveston, Texas, as a child. He studied painting in New York and elsewhere on the East Coast. His Galveston studio was destroyed in the 1900 hurricane, but Schumann rebuilt it on the same site.
