Based in London, sculptor Paul Raphael Montford was the son of Horace Montford, sculptor, and his wife Sarah Elizabeth, née Lewis. Horace Montford was curator of schools at the Royal Academy of Arts. Paul learned modelling in his father's studio and drawing at the Lambeth School of Art. He entered the Royal Academy in 1887 and travelled to Italy, Spain and France on a scholarship all before 1891. Montford regularly exhibited portrait busts at the Royal Academy but specialised in the sculpture of architectural decoration.
