8.1: Photographs of Artists , ca. 1880-ca. 1968

This subseries contains a rich collection of photographs of many of the artists whose work was handled by the Macbeth Gallery. As revealed in the gallery's correspondence files, artists occasionally wrote to the gallery enclosing pictures for what was known as Macbeth's "Rogue Gallery," presumably a file of photographs maintained for publicity purposes. A substantial number of the photographs are original silver gelatin and platinum prints; there are also several daguerrotypes and an original photo postcard. Many of the photographs are autographed and some are addressed to the gallery. Many of the photographs were taken by commerical studios such as Alman & Co., De Vos, Haeseler, and Peter A. Juley, and several were taken by Gertrude Käsebier.
The photographs are arranged alphabetically by artist with two group photographs at the end of the subseries showing a group of artists in the Sherwood Studio Building in 1889 (Willard Allen, Carleton Chapman, Herbert Denham, Sam Isham, Willard Metcalf, Robert Reid, Robert Van Boskerck, Thomas Sullivant, and Harry Watrous); and the group of artists known as "The Ten" (Frank W. Benson, William Merritt Chase, Joseph R. DeCamp, T. W. Dewing, Childe Hassam, W. L. Metcalf, Robert Reid, Edward Simmons, Edmund C. Tarbell and Julian Alden Weir) taken in 1908 on the occasion of their exhibition at Durand-Ruel, Inc. Folders may contain original prints in addition to copy prints and any accompanying or identifying information. The photographs of artists have been digitally scanned and may be viewed on the AAA Digital Collections Database.
