Clay Spohn was born in San Francisco, California, on November 24, 1898. Active in San Francisco, Clay Spohn was an exponent of modern art and experimented with Surrealism, Dadaism and Abstract Expressionism. He did Works Progress Administration murals in the 1930s and also became a painter, lithographer and illustrator.
