Eric Sloane in May of 1969 at the Eric Sloane Museum of Kent, Connecticut.  The scene at appears in the photo has not changed.  If you were to enter the Eric Sloane Museum today the painting, hand written sheet that appears above Eric’s head, and the winnowing tray next to him are all still in exactly the same location.  The winnowing tray and painting were to be sold together – this being an example of what Eric termed his “placements” or “placement painting”.  The idea was to sell a painting as well as the actual object that inspired the painting.  Eric Sloane saw, heard, and felt much in the early American landscape in which he found inspiration.
