(New Haven: Yale University Press, 1969).

ONE OF ONLY 150 COPIES AND THIS COPY WITH TWO OF THE SIGNED PROOF ETCHINGS, only one was intended to be provided with each copy of the book. A very impressive and handsomely produced Catalogue Raisonné of John Sloan, a member of The Eight, a group of American artists, and the leading figure in the Ashcan School of realist artists. In AMERICAN VISIONS the critic Robert Hughes praised the influence of "the most lyrical, and politically acerbic of the Ashcan artists, 'a spectator of life', as he called himself. Sloan's work had an honest humane-ness, a frank sympathy, he refused to flatten lower-class New Yorkers into stereotypes of misery, and his strong sense of the moments in which ordinary people are seen unawares, or isolated, was to deeply affect the leading artist of the next generation, Edward Hopper." Item #22952
