A student of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Sloan's early artistic career was spent as an illustrator for local newspapers in Philadelphia. In 1904, he moved to New York, where his many etchings and paintings of New York City, (created while part of the Ashcan School), led to his considerable fame. "His posters display a firm control of graphic design that continued throughout his extensive career as an etcher in the new century" (Kiehl p. 192). Among other magazines to which Sloan contributed illustrations, were The Echo, The Chap Book and The Inland Printer. Kiehl 276, DFP-I 478, Margolin p. 124, Keay p. 105, V&A E.1398-2004.
