John French Sloan (1871 - 1951) born in Pennsylvania, was an American painter at a time when painting was in a state of tremendous flux, world history was re-shaping itself and representational artists were being overshadowed by the 'new modernism'. An early believer in 'socialism', Sloan was a leading member of the 'Ashcan' school of painting (a name he apparently hated). Sloan is known for his depictions of 'everyday' city life and down-to-earth subject matter. One of his most famous works is the painting of McSorley's Bar (1912) in Manhattan.
