Paul Carey (1904-2001) was an exhibiting artist who spent his life in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sometimes described as a Modernist, he was an important member of the group of plein air artists that has defined Bay Area landscape painting from the 1930s on. In his early years, Carey occasionally painted with a group of Modernist painters known as the "Society of Six,'' later partnering in a San Francisco graphics design studio with one member of the group, watercolorist Maurice Logan. Carey was one of the Thirteen Watercolorists, a regional group of artists that included Logan and others. Some of his paintings are also exhibited in the Bohemian Club, of which he was a member for many decades. Carey taught at the California School of Arts and Crafts, University of California at Berkeley Extension and the San Francisco Art Institute.
