This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter, illustrator, and etcher, Paul Ashbrook was a leading figure in Cincinnati art circles in the early 20th Century. Early in his career, he painted with the name Paul Von Eschenbach, his German name that he legally changed to Ashbrook in 1917.

Ashbrook was born in New York City in 1867 and in 1885, attended the Art Students League as a student of William Merritt Chase. Ashbrook had a studio at the 10th Street Studio Building, having started his career in New York as an illustrator for Charles Klackner.

In 1900, he moved to Cincinnati where from 1900 to 1918, he was the Director of the Design Department for the Henderson Lithographic Company, and took classes at the Cincinnati Art Academy from Frank Duveneck. From 1914 to 1919, Ashbrook taught at the Cincinnati Art Academy, and from 1920 to 1929, he was a designer for the Strobridge Lithographic Company for whom he created many posters including for Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Beginning in 1926, he traveled widely in Europe and Mexico, and died of pneumonia in 1949 in San Miguel, Mexico.
