JOHN FRENCH SLOAN (American, 1871-1951)

An Exhibition of 61 Important Etchings
Exhibition from November 2 - December 1, 2012

This list of John Sloan’s prints is arranged in chronological sequence and each subject is identified by title and the Morse Catalog Raisonne number associated with it. Dimensions are given height before width and refer to the platemark not the paper size. Many of Sloan’s prints were dried and stretched to flatten them by the various printers. Pin holes at the outer edge of the wide margins reflect this practice.

A leading figure in the Ashcan School of American Realism, John French Sloan (1871-1951) is one of the most influential artists and art educators of the 20th century. A member of the Socialist Party, Sloan favored gritty, urban subjects that spotlighted the working class and occasionally lampooned the excesses of the aristocratic elite. He was, however, averse to the notion of painting propaganda and insisted that his city life scenes were inspired not by any political agenda but by the "bits of joy in human life" he saw reflected in his subjects. A participant in the Armory Show and mentor of artists Raphael Soyer, Reginald Marsh and Peggy Bacon, Sloan had an immeasurable impact on the artistic identity of New York City. The Antique Print Department is proud to present an exhibition of selected etchings by John Sloan during the month of November.
