Loring, Paule Stetson (1899-1968)

Paule Loring original cartoon artwork.

Paule Loring was a Rhode Island artist who earned an international reputation for his cartoons, caricatures, and seascapes. He left school at 13 and worked odd jobs, from truck driver to editor of a leather factory newsletter. But eventually, he distinguished himself as a war correspondent and political cartoonist for the Providence Journal-Bulletin. Besides sketching and hob-nobbing with the rich and famous, Loring loved boating and built his own Block Island Schooner, the Glory Anna II. Later in life, he and his wife Virginia settled in Wickford, Rhode Island, where Loring sold paintings and sketches from a seaman's shanty that doubled as an artist's studio.
