Art Brokerage: Ed Paschke American Artist: b. 1939-2004. Born in 1939 in a small house in a quiet suburb of Chicago, Ed Paschke became one of Chicago's most extraordinary artists. As a child his interest in drawing led him to a degree program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While commuting by train, he would practice his craft of drawing in a realistic manner, but in school he learned to paint expressionistically, that is expressing an emotional response, seizing the moment.
