PAUL WILSON STEER (186o– ), English painter, was born at Birkenhead. He was trained first at the Gloucester school of art and afterwards in Paris at the Academie Julian, and in the Ecole des Beaux Arts under Cabanel. After 1886, before which date he had shown three pictures at the Royal Academy, practically the whole of his work was seen in the exhibitions of the New English Art Club, of which he is a prominent member. His figure subjects and landscapes show great originality and technical skill (see PAINTING: Recent British). His portrait of himself is included in the collection in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence.
