Series 3: Inventory Records, 1892-circa 1957
3 linear feet
Boxes 111-113

The information found here supports that found in Series 2: Financial and Shipping Records and consists of card files recording stock disposition and a series of stock books. The card files are an invaluable tool for tracking the artwork that passed through Macbeth's hands. The first file, arranged alphabetically by artist, records the disposition of all pictures sold and unsold and the second, arranged by buyer, provides similar information from a different angle. The cards record information such as inventory numbers, names of artists, titles of pictures, dates received, media, sizes, framing information, owners, and sales prices. Some cards have photographs of pictures attached.
While most of the stock books list gallery stock only, those for 1894-1903 and 1906 contain a record of pictures which were the property of William Macbeth, and for which he assumed liability in the event of loss or damage by, or resulting from fire.
