Available works by: Thomas Nast  German / American (1840 - 1902)  

Thomas Nast (German / American, 1840–1902) was born in Landau, Germany, on September 27, 1840. In 1862, Nast joined the staff of Harper's Weekly as an artist. He worked for the publication for roughly 25 years. While there, Nast quickly made a name for himself focusing on such topics as the immigration, slavery and corruption.  By the 1870s, Nast primarily focused his efforts on political cartoons where he created the still-popular images of the Democratic Party represented by a donkey and the Republican Party by an elephant. At the time of his death in 1902 he had fallen on hard times, but Nast is still remembered as one of the most successful political cartoonists of all time.
