Macbeth, William
Biography
Founded in New York in 1892 by William Macbeth, the Macbeth Gallery was the first to focus exclusively on American art. The gallery's most famous exhibition was the 1908 showing of The Eight, a group of American artists headed by Robert Henri who opposed the conversatism of the National Academy. Company records now in possession of the Archives of American Art show that leadership was passed to William's brother Robert Macbeth, and subsequently to William's nephew Robert Intyre. The gallery closed in 1953.
