Projet de recherche
During my time in Paris, I will work on my book manuscript on John Sloan. This project considers the work of Sloan and his colleagues in the context of a broader shift in American visual culture, in which changes in printing technologies and distribution networks fundamentally altered the work of newspaper illustrators around the turn of the twentieth century. My study contributes to the existing scholarly literature by more fully examining the range of Sloan's work in the field of popular illustration, including word puzzles and editorial cartoons. This, in turn, offers new insights into the social and political alignments of American art in that period. I also plan to conduct research on the development of the market for photographic reproductions of works of art in the nineteenth century by the French firm Goupil. This research is connected to a project on Vincent van Gogh, who worked for Goupil, in both Paris and London, in the 1870s.
