Seeing the City: Sloan's New York

Explore New York City through the eyes of Ashcan School artist John Sloan. Sloan moved to New York in 1904. His life in Chelsea and Greenwich Village provided the subjects for paintings, prints, and illustrations from 1905 through the 1940s.

The exhibition Seeing the City: Sloan's New York focuses on Sloan's images of New York, presenting an in-depth view of his years in the city. Seeing the City draws on the rich resources donated by Helen Farr Sloan to the Delaware Art Museum, including works of art and the John Sloan Manuscript Collection.
