Scope and Contents:
This small collection of a video interview conducted by Laurie Marshall with Helen Sloan, widow of artist John Sloan, measures 1.0 linear feet and dates from circa 1950 and 1991. The bulk of the collection consists of video and audio recordings of the interview, a transcript of the interview, and a rough transfer of a black and white 16 mm film about John Sloan. The interview was conducted in preparation for a documentary on John Sloan, "John Sloan's New York". Although full documentary was never produced, a 3:38 demonstration from the interview was produced on June 24, 1992.

The interview offers insight mostly to John Sloan's artistic style and development, but also gives a glimpse into his marriage to his first wife, Anna Maria (Dolly) Wall, and into his relationship with Helen Sloan. Materials include three audio cassettes, five Beta Master tapes, five VHS tapes, a typed master transcript, a transcript copy with reel notations, and one rough transfer of a short black and white 16mm film about John Sloan from circa 1950 on VHS.
Arrangement:
Due to the small size of this collection the papers are arranged as one series.

Series 1: Interviews, 1991-1992 (2 linear feet, Box 1-2)
Biographical / Historical:
Laurie Marshall is a documentary film producer and director in New York who specializes in art and art history.
