John Sloan’s Greenwich Village
A lecture with John Loughery

One of the most celebrated American realist painters of the early 20th century, John Sloan captured the character and pace of Greenwich Village in a way few artists were able to match. In this illustrated lecture at the Jefferson Market Library (one of Sloan’s favorite Village subjects), teacher and biographer John Loughery examines Sloan’s diverse representations of the East, West, and South Villages. Placing Sloan’s work in the context of early 20th-century American urban painting, Mr. Loughery will also explore how underlying themes of romance and myth permeated Sloan’s work as well as that of other New York City painters.
