About the Author

John French Sloan (August 2, 1871 - September 7, 1951) was a U.S. artist. As a member of The Eight, a group of American artists, he became a leading figure in the Ashcan School of realist artists. He was known for his urban genre painting and ability to capture the essence of neighborhood life in New York City, often through his window. Sloan has been called "the premier artist of the Ashcan School who painted the inexhaustible energy and life of New York City during the first decades of the twentieth century", and an "early twentieth-century realist painter who embraced the principles of socialism and placed his artistic talents at the service of those beliefs --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A detailed account of life in New York City's art world of 1906-1913 - of interest to anyone learning about the Armory Show, the Eight/ "Ashcan School of Painting," Robert Henri's circle, and the growth of the Greenwich Village Community that centered on The Masses (1911-1918). This book offers an in-depth look at the life of an American artist at that time. Sloan worked constantly, schlepped work to galleries, arranged and participated in exhibitions with his friends, did book illustration, and sold comic-art-style "puzzles" to the Philadelphia Press. He was famous as a member of "The Eight" (later insultingly called the Ashcan School) but did not sell a painting until well into middle age. Based on the Sloan collection at the Delaware Art Center -- includes references to Rockwell Kent, Arthur Dove, Leonard Abbott, Sadakichi Hartmann, and others associated with 291, the Modern School, and The Masses.
