Sloan and artist Norman Rockwell

Sloan pre-dates Norman Rockwell, they both satirise modern life in America during their relevant periods. However, Rockwell focuses very much on middle America, whereas Sloan is looking at the working classes. They both share an incredible eye for detail and observation of life.

Social observation: visitor response to the display

Wonderful, highly skilled and entertaining social observation. I laughed out loud at some. Also appreciated the fascinating depiction of New York life.

Social Circle

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!
