Bryn Mawr College
Accession Number: 1962.118.a

Sloan creates a very dynamic light source in this print that animates its theatrical narrative. The fireworks’ explosion acts as this light source, dramatically sweeping across the top of the print, heightening the chaos and anxiety as the characters attempt to escape the flames.
