Description

Perhaps more than any other artist of his generation, John Sloan created prints that captured the textures and rhythms of New York life in the early part of the twentieth century.

Connoisseurs of Prints is part of a series of ten etchings that focus on daily life in the big city. Here he mocks the self-important visitors to a gallery or museum, keenly admiring the prints on the walls. He was likely inspired by Honoré Daumier, whose caricatures of gallery- and museum-goers delighted Parisians in mid- to late-nineteenth-century France, and which were widely known in art circles in the United States.
