Barber Institute of Fine Arts

25 May – 16 September 2018

This exhibition explores work by the American artist John Sloan, giving fascinating historical insights into early 20th-century New York.

John Sloan, The Little Bride (New York City Life Series), 1906

John Sloan was a friend and contemporary of George Bellows, and his work – like that of other artists from the Ashcan School – provides fascinating historical insights into Manhattan life during a period of rapid social change.

These rare prints, a gift to the Barber collection from Delaware Art Museum, are the only complete set outside of the US, and have an important place in the history of fine-art printmaking.
