John Sloan Art

American, 1871-1951
John Sloancame to New York in 1904 and worked for some time as a freelance illustrator. With Robert Henri, he organized an exhibition of a group of urban realist painters, known as "The Eight" or the "Ashcan School," who challenged traditional notions of art. Having moved to the Village in 1912, Sloan lived with his wife Dolly at 240 West 4th Street and at 88 Washington Place.

FRANKIE AND JOHNNIE or HIM
By John Sloan
Located in Portland, ME
Sloan, John (American, 1871-1951). FRANKIE AND JOHNNIE. or HIM Morse 236. Etching, 1928. Edition of 100 (but only 50 were printed, by Platt). Dated and Titled in the plate, and Signed in pencil by Sloan and inscribed "100 Proofs," and also signed by Peter Platt. With tack holes and deckled edges. 5 x 8 inches, 126 x 203 mm. (plate), 8 1/2 x 12 1/4 inches (sheet). In excellent condition. From Morse: " A small chorus singing 'Frankie and Johnnie' crowds the tiny stage of the Provincetown Players Theater in MacDougal Street. An episode from E. E. Cummings' intelligent and entertaining production, HIM." (Sloan writing in 1945). "HIM" is about as thrilling an evening's entertainment as I have ever experienced. I liked it thoroughly -- I do not claim to understand it -- I do not believe that a work of art can be, nor need be understood, even by the maker. It seemed to me to be a glimpse inside the cranium of an artist-poet." (Sloan in a letter to James Light, the director of the play) Though Morse says the stars were Hemsley Williams and Goldye Steiner, it was actually Hemliey Winfield (1907 - 1934), the founder of the New Negro Art Theater Dance Group. This company was very successful and highly regarded. It appeared in the Metropolitan Opera's premier of Louis Gruenberg's setting of Eugene O'Neill's "The Emperor...
