Paul Clement Matthews II, an artist and writer based in Lambertville, New Jersey and Keene, New York, whose paintings were shown at galleries and museums in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, died Jan. 15, 2019 in Hamilton, New Jersey, where he had been hospitalized with a chronic lung disease. He was 85.

Matthews' work ranged from portraits and nudes done in a meticulous, realistic style, to majestic landscapes and cloudscapes of the Adirondack high peaks, to darker, dreamlike scenes that reflected a surreal inner world.

He attended South Kent School in Connecticut and Kenyon College in Ohio.

A funeral service for Matthews will be held on Feb. 23 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Princeton, New Jersey, with a reception to follow. A memorial service will also be held in Keene Valley this summer, with a date to be determined.
