I get the overall impression that Sloan was intrigued by the lives and goings-on of people outside of his social circle.
There is a feeling of great empathy and lots of humour.
I love it!

Sloan explores the social issues of importance within the 19th / 20th century of class, power, struggle and lifestyles. Through etchings and foreboding lines, shapes and form, Sloan exemplifies the social differences and draws from humorous origins to criticise or contrast the present day’s political correctness.
