John Sloan, born in Lock Haven, PA, was a major early 20th- century figure in the New York Social Realist movement. He was guided by Robert Henri, and was particularly adept at drawing and painting. Sloan began going to the U.S. Southwest, Santa Fe, New Mexico in particular, to paint in 1910. He bought a home there in 1920, and lived and worked there 4 months a year until 1950. Sloan primarily worked in portraiture. The year 1913 was of particular importance to Sloan. His work became wildly popular at the Armory Show and he sold his first painting, "Nude in the Green Scarf," to Albert C. Barnes of Philadelphia.
