From the rooftops of John Sloan's painting to the canals in Venice

Coming of Age: American Art, 1850s to 1950s is now opened at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy. The cultural guide, Un Ospite di Venezia, or A Guest in Venice, highlights cultural events, gallery and museum openings, hot spots, hotels, etc. John Sloan's Sunday, Women Drying Their Hair of 1912 was featured on the cover. Although the publication is distributed throughout the city, it might not be available to us in the states, so I've scanned the appropriate pages to share with you. (The full article is also available on Un Ospite di Venezia's website incase the following images are not legible.)
