The Role of the Macbeth Gallery in Shaping the Collection

Saturday, March 4 – December 30

Robert Macbeth to Bartlett Arkell, March 8, 1917

The Macbeth Gallery had a profound impact on the development of American art. It was the first gallery in New York City to focus on work by American artists, and held many ground-breaking exhibits. Our founder Bartlett Arkell made many important purchases at the Macbeth Gallery, and worked closely with gallery directors to build our extraordinary collection. This exhibit is a small tribute to his vision for the future, and the early work of the Macbeth Gallery.
