Best known for his paintings of New York City in the early 20th century, John Sloan began his career as a newspaper illustrator and painter in Philadelphia, before relocating to New York in 1904. Gloucester, Massachusetts, and Santa Fe, New Mexico, were also significant locations in his art and life, and his paintings are now on view in museums across the United States. This talk follows the artist from his regional beginnings to national collections and ends with a discussion of how and when Sloan’s finest paintings entered museums, including the Detroit Institute of Arts.
