Born in Austria in 1921, Paul Zunterstein fled Austria during the Nazi Anschluss at age seventeen, and settled in Glasgow. In later years he moved to Kilmacolm.

He studied and taught sculpture at the GSA under Benno Schotz , and exhibited work at the RGIFA and RSA between 1950 and 1968.

In 1953, he produced Mother and Child for the north facade of Chirnsyde Primary School, 28 Ashgill Road, Glasgow. The work caused controversy because the figures were nude, and during the debate about the work, Douglas Percy Bliss, the principal of Glasgow School of Art described Zunterstein as 'one of the best students they had had at the School of Art for years.'

His wife, Norma Margaret Lewis was also a sculptor; she graduated from the GSA in 1962.
