Sloan, John. NUDE AND NEWSPAPERS. M.276. Etching, 1933. 5 1/2 x 7 inches; 140 x 178 mm. Inscribed "100 proofs," titled, and signed, all in pencil, and further inscribed, also in pencil, lower left, "To Elizabeth B. Johnston/Jan 1940 - J.S." Of the projected edition of 100, only 45 were printed, 20 by White and 25 by Roth. Scarce. Morse quotes Sloan on this print as follows: "Strong in drawing and striking black and white relationships. Real and not realistic; has carryig power that may sometimes be desirable in a print. Going further in color-texture had perhaps been my intention, but it is just as well that I left the plate when I did. Perhaps before long the public will begin to realize that nudes are not necessarily cheaply realistic, sentimental or even sensuous, as Thomas Craven seems to demand."
