Biography   Eric Sloane


Eric Sloane was born, Everard Jean Hinrichs, on February 27, 1905 in New York City to a well-to-do family. Early on, he took up an interest in art, spending many boyhood hours with neighbor and noted font inventor, Frederic Goudy (Goudy Type). From Goudy, at an early age, he learned to hand paint letters and signs.

Some of Sloane's first clients included aviation pioneers flying out of Roosevelt Field, Long Island. Many of those flyers insisted he paint the identifying marking on their planes. In exchange for teaching him to paint, Wiley Post himself, taught the young Hinrichs to fly. After his first flight the young man fell in love with clouds and the sky, themes that would be central to his work for the rest of his life.
