This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Seattle, Abe Blashko was a self-taught artist whose specialties were pencil drawings and lithographs of Depression-era figures. He dropped out of school to pursue his obvious talent for drawing and by age 18, he had his first one-man exhibit of prints and drawings at the Seattle Art Museum.

His drawings and prints from the late 1930s and 1940s depict the "gritty edge of street life during the Great Depression in Seattle and New York" (Swann), where he moved in 1943. There, living in the East Village, Blashko supported himself as a teacher, illustrator, and cartoonist.

Many of his works had the theme of "Seeds of Aryan Kulture" of "The Ratmen", a group of studies of atrocities committed under the Nazis in Poland. These drawings have been so controversial that they were not exhibited until 1992 in New York City.
