Overview


When the young artist Everard Jean Hinrichs was looking for a new name, he chose "Sloane" as a tribute to his mentor John Sloane and "Eric" as homage to his greatest inspiration, America. This original collection of Eric Sloane's oil paintings spotlights his evocative depictions of the nation's landscape and material culture. Shimmering with immense historical and nostalgic appeal, it features nearly a hundred of the artist's finest paintings of locations ranging from New England to the American Southwest. A perfect introduction to Sloane's art, this fine anthology will also appeal to the painter's many longtime fans. Michael Wigley, whose Santa Fe gallery is a primary venue for Sloane's artwork, selected these images from an extensive legacy. Wigley also provides an informative commentary on the artist's techniques, and Mimi Sloane offers a warm reminiscence of her husband's life and lively career.
