John Sloan (1871-1951), a painter and etcher, is known for his scenes of New York City life. He produced more than 300 etchings from the 1890s to the 1940s. The Sloan Collection donated to this Museum includes primarily his own plates and prints, with a number of prints by his contemporaries and students Peggy Bacon, Gustave Baumann, Don Freeman, Reginald Marsh, and Mahonri Young.
