Paul Starrett Sample (September 14, 1896, in Louisville, Kentucky – February 26, 1974, in Norwich, Vermont), was an American artist who portrayed life in New England in the middle of the 20th Century with a style that showed elements of Social Realism and Regionalism. 

Paul Starrett Sample served in the Navy in World War I and then attended Dartmouth College where he was intercollegiate boxing champion. After graduating in 1921 with an M.F.A. degree, he spent four years in the Adirondacks recuperating from tuberculosis. During this time he became interested in art and studied with Jonas Lie, at Saranac Lake.

Sample then studied art at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, California. There his work reflected social issues connected with the Great Depression with two noted paintings in 1931. In 1926 Sample joined the faculty of the University of Southern California, in the School of Architecture, where he remained until 1938. In 1938, Sample returned to New Hampshire to become the artist in residence at Dartmouth College, a position which he held until 1962. In addition to his social and regional paintings, Sample produced artwork for various magazines during World War II.
Sample did the cover art for Carl Sandburg's 1948 novel Remembrance Rock.
In 1941 he was inducted into the National Academy.
During the 1920′s Sample painted landscapes and during the 1930′s, produced Regionalist works of middle-class Americans.
