Sloan met Robert Henri in 1892. Regarded as a talented painter and charismatic advocate of artistic independence, Henri became Sloan’s mentor and closest friend, greatly influencing the development of Sloan’s career. Henri encouraged Sloan in his graphic work such as using crayon and eventually convinced him to turn to painting. In Memory, Sloan highlights the important position of Henri in his life by situating Henri at his opposite at the table.
