Angna Enters (ca. 1900 -1989) was known for performances that were often referred to as 'compositions in dance form' or 'episodes.' Enters used dance, mime, acting, costumes, music and sets to bring to life an array of characters from different times and foreign countries. Miss Enters was also an artist and exhibited paintings and drawings at The Memorial Art Gallery in November of 1936 and she performed in Rochester at least once in 1946. Raised in Milwaukee, Enters moved to New York City in the early 1920's, where she enrolled in a life class taught by John Sloan at the Art Students League. Enters and Sloan met again several years later after a performance she gave in 1925. Sloan, Robert Henri and others were so impressed with Enters' performance that they created a committee to promote her work as they had done decades earlier for dance legend Isadora Duncan.

In attendance were a number of artists who would form the core of the urban realists led by Henri-among them George Bellows (standing, third from the right toward the upper right corner), John Sloan, and William Glackens. Sloan recorded the event in this etching. On close examination, it is possible to see a caricature of Bellows with the initials GB. According to artist Rockwell Kent, who is also included in this etching, "We used to paint all over the walls of the studio, and Sloan shows some of those paintings in his etching. The one bearing the initials 'GB' is probably someone's caricature of Bellows at that time."

While John Sloan’s tender print of a bedtime moment in a New York tenement seems far removed from the ubiquitous and explicit displays of contemporary sexuality, the image was firmly rejected for the American Water Color Society’s 1906 exhibition as being ‘vulgar’ and ‘indecent.’ Sloan was part of a group of artists later called the Ashcan School, who did not shy away from subjects that other artists found unworthy or unattractive. Because so many of the artists, among them Sloan, had difficulty exhibiting their work due to their choice of subject matter and their idiosyncratic styles, they mounted their own exhibition in 1908 at Macbeth Gallery in New York City and were subsequently referred to as The Eight.
