JOHN SLOAN (American / 1871-1951)

John Sloan was born in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Sloan moved to New York in 1904. Living in Greenwich Village and teaching at the Art Students League, John Sloan pioneered a new style of gritty urban realism, reflected in his 1905 portfolio of etchings, New York City Life. Along with artists such as Henri and Glackens, Sloan's social realism earned the dismissive moniker of the Ashcan School. It was only after the famous Armory Show of 1913 that John Sloan's star began to rise.
