Paul Schaan biography
Paul Schaan was born in Petrograd, Russia to French parents. He worked in Paris in the late nineteenth century.

Schaan painted interior and genre subjects. He was particularly fond of depicting cardinals in lavish surroundings. His canvases were painted with rich colours and a wealth of detail. Schaan's treatment of this subject was similar to that of many other cardinal painters - Francois Brunery being perhaps the most well known. The two artists often satirised the Lords of the Church and delighted in portraying them in humorous domestic dramas, in the privacy of their extravagant homes. Such portrayals showed that the clergy were subject to the same mundane trivialities of human existence as their humble flock. Indeed this genre was very popular with the nineteenth century art collectors.

Schaan was a member of the Societe des Artistes Francais where he received an honourable mention in 1892.
