John Kraushaar proved a good salesman, as documented in John Sloan’s humorous 1926 etching, Kraushaar’s, in which the artist described him as 'engaged in the difficult job of selling a picture to a man whose wife feels she needs sables' and 'helping a husband persuade a lady who already has a mink coat that she could add to her splendors by owning a painting.'
