Artist John Sloan lived in New York City in 1914—almost 100 years ago! Looking out from his window, Sloan painted a view of his backyard from his Greenwich Village studio apartment.
Imagine you are looking out of a window in your home; what would you see?
How would it look different than what you see in this painting?
Sloan liked to explore the city, looking for ideas for his paintings. He would sit in parks, look from rooftops, and watch out of windows to see how people lived in the city.
The artist included three people in this painting; see if you can find them all!
What are they doing?
What else might you find people doing outside—or inside—during the winter?
