4.2: Other Printed Material, 1838-1962, n.d.

These folders contain non-Macbeth Gallery printed material including magazine and newspaper articles on a variety of artists as well as exhibition announcements and catalogs from other galleries, museums, and organizations including the American Water Color Society and the National Academy of Design.
One item of particular note is a bound catalog of the exhibition
Ten American Painters
held at the Durand-Ruel, Inc., in 1898. The catalog is signed by each of the ten painters represented in the exhibition.
Also of note among the art publications is a set of bound volumes of the pre-Civil War American art journal
The Crayon
. Published monthly in New York
The Crayon
was the first substantial periodical devoted entirely to the arts and is an indispensable resource for research on developments in the art world of the immediate pre-Civil War period. The volumes comprise an almost complete run of the journal which was published between 1855 and 1861. The Macbeth Gallery set dates from 1855 to 1859.
At the end of the series are two delightful pamphlets concerning Frederick Keppel's relationship with James MacNeill Whistler. The first was "privately printed and copyrighted by Frederick Keppel" in 1904 and entitled
The Gentle Art of Resenting Injuries
, some "unpublished correspondence addressed to the author of "The Gentle Art of Making Enemies." The second is entitled "One Day With Whistler," published by Keppel in 1908. The first booklet describes an altercation between Keppel and Whistler in the form of reprinted correspondence between the two men and Keppel's commentary on the incident which he describes as a "brilliant specimen of characteristic abusive Whistlerism." There are two copies of the pamphlet, which Keppel published in "very limited edition" solely for a few of his friends, one addressed to "To Robert W. Macbeth from his friend-the author," and another to William Macbeth. The second pamphlet further describes "Whistler's intercourse with me and mine with him."
