Girl with Auburn Hair depicts Kitty Yoder, a close Philadelphia friend of John and Dolly Sloan, in the dim light of a neighborhood eatery. Here Sloan demonstrates his early interest in presenting his sitters within the context of daily life -- a harbinger of The Eight's vanguard urban subjects. Girl with Auburn Hair also recalls the tonal painting technique so admired by Robert Henri, William Merritt Chase, and John Singer Sargent.
Estimate: $60,000 - $80,000.
Relined canvas with masking varnish; craquelure, commensurate with age, in sitter's hair and coat; under UV examination, striated in-painting paralleling top, left, and right edges and scattered flecks of in-painting throughout sitter's coat, face, and hair.
