About: In 1905 John Sloan began an important series of etchings entitled New York City Life that represents distinctive aspects of everyday urban life. He originally planned a group of ten but added three more between 1910 and 1911. The etchings represent all classes of people and many urban activities, including street life, the art crowd, upper-class society, popular entertainment, couples in love, the family, marriage, prostitution, and poverty.
