Sloan Biography

The subjects of many of John Sloan's monotypes are directly related to those of his paintings and etchings, but in no instance are they copies of other compositions. A Woman Drying Her Hair depicts a scene of everyday life in Sloan's New York City neighborhood. The view of Greenwich Village in this monotype is what Sloan saw from his studio window on Washington Place at Sixth Avenue, where he moved in 1914.
