Sloan, John. A THIRST FOR ART. Morse 306. Etching, 1939. 3rd State of four. Titled, signed, and inscribed "100 Proofs, all in pencil. There were 110 actually printed, by Charles White. A Second Edition of 100 was printed of the fourth state and donated by Sloan to the Society of Independent Artists, of which Sloan was President. These are distinguished by minor state changes, and by the absence of the "100 Proofs" inscription. 4 x 6 inches, 100 x 135 mm. (plate), 8 x 9 3/4 inches (sheet). In excellent condition. A satirical print about the lack of interest in art at an art opening. "They don't see the pictures at all, knocking them crooked on the wall with their shoulders." (Sloan, writing in 1945, quoted in Morse).
