The Puzzling World of John Sloan

On view at the Delaware Art Museum, from June 6th through September 6th, 2015

"Between 1900 and 1910, John Sloan produced a weekly series of word and picture puzzles for the Sunday supplement of the Philadelphia Press, one of the country’s leading illustrated newspapers. The Puzzling World of John Sloan will explore this little-known facet of Sloan’s early newspaper career, presenting more than 25 works from the Museum’s collection. On view for the first time, the puzzles demonstrate the artist’s imagination and verbal and visual wit, as well as the fluid boundaries between fine art and newspaper illustration in the first decade of the 20th century. This exhibition encourages visitors to solve Sloan’s complex puzzles."
