John Sloan

I find it interesting to read how artists of the past dealt with their art in their daily lives. So I just started reading a book about John Sloan. The book describes him as a painter and a rebel.

Here is a quote from the book leaf: As a member of the "The Eight," a group who challenges the anachronistic dictates of the Academy, John Sloan was a passionate chronicler of the untidy realities of urban American life, who believed that "character is everything in art".
