About Eric Sloane

Within the narrative history of American painting, there is a special place for great landscape artists. Eric Sloane is without a doubt one of those artists. In addition to painting incredible landscapes, he authored a large number of books, most of them illustrated. Eric Sloane's books range from children's fiction to nonfiction. Thanks to a background in sign painting, his books are typified by unique calligraphy, which adds an element of aesthetic beauty to his stories. Many of his tales revolve around his love for the folk culture of New England and the daily life of people in Colonial America. His work is surprisingly academic in method, and his research yielded an extensive collection of evidence. That evidence is displayed in the books being sold on eBay, which span his entire catalog. They range in style, but Sloane's commitment to quality and beauty shine through. In addition to books, you can find a large number of Eric Sloane prints as well, a testament to his days as a painter. Eric Sloane is a great addition to the American tradition of nature-inspired art.
