Datebook: August 2 – John Sloan turns 140

leave a comment »

John French Sloan was born on August 2, 1871. He was an American artist and 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.” Click here to see some of his fantastic artwork.
