Biography  
Paul Plaschke


Paul Albert Plaschke, a native of Germany, achieved recognition as a political cartoonist through his work at the Evening Post, Louisville Times and Courier-Journal newspapers in Louisville through the 1920s and at The Herald Examiner in Chicago in the 1930s. His need to earn a livelihood as a cartoonist conflicted with his ambitions as a painter, but his reputation as an Impressionist landscapist earned him a place at major American art exhibitions in the East and Midwest, including the Hoosier Salon. Plaschke was a founder of the Louisville Art Academy and was instrumental in the beginnings of the Speed Art Museum. He was a student of George Luks at the Art Students League in New York.
