Ashcan School - John French Sloan (1871 – 1951) part 5

John French Sloan (1871 – 1951) was an American artist. As a member of The Eight, 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 is part 5 of a 5-part post on the works of John Sloan. For biographical notes on Sloan see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 4 also. 

After a break the next artist associated with the Ashcan School featured here will be Ernest Lawson.
