About

1914. Etching. Morse catalog 167 state ii. Image: 5 7/8 x 4 1/4 (sheet 10 1/2 x 6 1/4). Edition 100. A rich impression printed on Japanese mulberry paper. Signed in pencil. Housed in a dramatic 17 x 13 1/2-inch black and gold wood frame. The laundry flutters in erotically charged shapes. Sloan writes, 'Poetic license probably permitted me to introduce many details in these city life plates. Note the protest of the fluttering garments and the neglected child. This woman was about thirty and the boy about eighteen. The nightshirts and underwear belonged to her husband. Seen from Fourth Street and Sixth Avenue, 11th floor studio. All these comments are deductions. I just saw it and etched it.' This etching was cited in a trial as an example of 'immorality in art.'
