Paul Maze(French, 1887-1979)
Maze served in both world wars and met Winston Churchill during their tenure in the Royal Scots Greys. They remained friends, and Maze served as a mentor for Churchill’s artistic endeavors. Maze’s father was an art collector, and Maze grew up in a circle of family friends that included Claude Monet, Raoul Duffy, Camille Pissarro, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Maze is often referred to as “the last of the post Impressionists.” He worked in oils, pastels, and watercolors and produced a wide variety of subject matter.
