John French Sloan's New York

John French Sloan is regarded as one of the founding members of the Ashcan School (although it was a term he despised). He is best known for his depiction of gritty urban genre scenes.

Sloan was both a prolific painter and etcher, and although his style suggests a rapid approach, his compositions were in fact created slowly and methodically.

This exhibition in the Carol R. Brown Gallery on the Third Floor features a selection of the nearly 30 drawings, prints and letters by Sloan in the Museum’s collection.
