This biography from the Archives of AskART:
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.

Biography from The Filson Historical Society, Inc.:
Paul Plaschke was born in Berlin, February 2, 1878 and came to American when he was four years old. He lived most of his life in Louisville, KY.

Plaschke studied engineering at Steven's Institute, Hoboken, New Jersey, and later was a student of Cooper Institute at the Art Student's League, New York, where he devoted himself to drawing. After two years with the New York World, he came to Louisville, KY, where he worked on the Louisville Commercial, Louisville Post, and Louisville Times.
While first known as a cartoonist, Plaschke became widely recognized as a landscape artist. His work in landscape began in 1905, and he was completely self-taught. Plaschke's work was represented in the Chicago Art Institute, the St. Louis Art Gallery, and the John Herron Art Institute of Indianapolis. In 1928, Plaschke exhibited four canvases at the Pascal Gatterdam Galleries, New York City: "Nocturnes," "Ohio River Shanty Boats," "Southern Indiana Hllsides" and "Fishing Craft at Biloxi." He died in 1954.
