Paul Matthias Padua was born in Salzburg, Austria, in 1903. After moving to Munich, he made a name for himself as a landscape and portrait painter and exhibited from 1922 in the Glaspalast there. Not only did Padua paint famous German actors, writers and singers, he also made realistic, penetrating portraits of the peasant population of southern Germany and Tyrol. Richly dressed in their traditional costume. In the 1940s, his brushwork became looser and he increasingly focused on smoothly designed still lifes, nudes, horse races, frivolous portraits of women and other fashionable subjects.
