Nude on Chair, Legs Crossed
Like all serious artists of their generation, Sloan and his friends often sketched and painted from the nude. This sketch of a woman seated on a draped studio prop is typical of Sloan’s many naturalistic depictions of the female body. Captured in a casual, unrefined pose, she appears refreshingly authentic and unidealized.
