Marianna Sloan - Artist
1875-1954

Born in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania in 1875 to John Dixon Sloan & Henrietta Ireland, she was a younger sister of the famous American artist John Sloan. She studied with Robert Henri and Elliott Daingerfield at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women. In 1915, her painting "Rocky Beach" was purchased for the Pennsylvania Academy through the John Lambert Fund, set-up to purchase works by promising but unrecognized artists. She was a skilled watercolorist, effectively using light and shadow. She also painted many murals for Philadelphia churches. Among her numerous exhibition venues were the Royal Academy in New York and the British Institute in London.
