At the turn of the 20th century, a group of newspaper illustrators turned fine artists, under the mentorship of the unconventional Robert Henri, rejected American Impressionism as, in Henri’s words, “a new academicism.” John Sloan, George Luks and their fellows sought out gritty, urban subjects – tenements, immigrant life, alcoholism – in the creation of a powerful modern American art.
