Future Research Questions

  1. Investigate women artists and artists of color working in or alongside Ashcan and Camden Town groups, ideally aiming to see how they do/do not take up similar themes and/or how their approach to those themes adds to the story.
  2. Did Camden Town artists represent immigrants to London, directly or indirectly?
  3. Were there historical points of contact between Ashcan and Camden Town artists and/or their work? (Did Henri and Sickert cross paths in Paris in the 1880s? Were works of art circulated through the art market in New York and London?)
  4. Continue to investigate the social contexts of the scenes represented, including researching what kinds of social groups were (and were not) present in particular spaces.
  5. Dive deeper into archives and writings of individual artists, Sloan papers, Sickert’s published writing, etc.
  6. Explore Sloan’s work in the 1920s and 1930s, including his time in the Southwest.
