AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy birthday, Sloan.

Sloan, McSorley's Back Room, 1912



John French Sloan was born on this day in 1871.

Every good picture leaves the painter eager to start again, unsatisfied, inspired by the rich mine in which he is working, hoping for more energy, more vitality, more time -- condemned to painting for life.
