John Sloan never traveled outside the United States. He was exposed to other cultures through friends who studied abroad, international art exhibitions, the transatlantic trade in prints and publications, and immigrants living in the U.S. This symposium will shed light on the international exchange of art and ideas that influenced the work of Sloan and his circle and shaped American art during his career. Leading scholars will explore the global conversations that inflected the work and critical reception of Sloan and his contemporaries. For details and registration information, visit delart.org.
