JOHN SLOAN Snowstorm in the Village.
Etching, 1925. 177x128 mm; 7x5 inches, full margins. Third state (of 3). Edition of 100. Signed, titled and inscribed "100 proofs" and signed by the printer, Ernest D. Roth, in pencil, lower margin. A very good impression of this important etching with strong contrasts.
Sloan (1871-1951) noted in his diary, "Viewed from my studio on Washington Place, the Jefferson Market Court tower and elevated tracks on Sixth Avenue under a swirl of snow." Sloan's studio at Washington Place was just around the corner from Edward Hopper's at 3 Washington Square North, both facing Washington Square Park, and many other American realist artists--including William Glackens, Everett Shinn, Guy Pène du Bois and Oscar Bluemner--had studios in the vicinity.
