John Sloan’s “Italian Procession” in the Village

October 4, 2010

“This painting is a rare document of the meeting of cultures in Greenwich Village, where bohemian artists and writers lived among the working-class Italian-American community south of Washington Square.”

So states a description of this 1925 painting by the Delaware Art Museum, which hosted a John Sloan exhibit a few years back.

“Sloan enjoyed his neighborhood’s Italian eateries—like Reganeschi’s—as well as parades like this one.”
