  John Sloan   (1871-1951)

 
  ARCH CONSPIRATORS, 1917. Morse 183. Ed. 100. Signed, editioned, and titled in pencil by Sloan. Also signed "Ernest Roth, imp." Roth, himself a talented etcher, was also a fine printer. On the evening of January 23, 1917, a group of six Greenwich Village bohemians invaded the roof of the famed Washington Square arch through an unlocked door and had a wonderful party, feasting on sandwiches and hot coffee, and tying colored balloons to the parapet. Along with Sloan, one of the conspirators was Marcel Duchamp, all of them proposing the secession of Greenwich Village from the United States. On fine laid paper, in very fine condition.
