Paul Maze, known chiefly as a painter of sporting and ceremonial occasions, was born in Le Havre to French parents but later became a British subject. After several years of working in the india-rubber trade, he was encouraged to paint by the artists Edouard Vuillard and André Dunoyer de Segonzac. In the First World War Maze served with the Royal Scots Greys, during which time he became a friend of Winston Churchill. In 1918 he set up a studio in Paris, becoming a notable figure in the city. In 1919 he settled in England, but continued to exhibit work in France, Italy, Spain and the United States. His work is represented in the Tate, London; the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; and the Glasgow Museum and Art Gallery.
