Series IX: Art Exhibitions and Sales

Scope and Content Note

From 1860 through 1889, members were required to annually contribute a piece of art work to be exhibited and sold at auction. Money from the sales was deposited in a Special Investment Fund used for life insurance benefits. This series contains ledgers documenting auction sales, including artist names, titles of paintings, names of purchasers, and purchase prices. It also contains notices to members regarding the logistics of the exhibitions, and an exhibit catalog from 1876.
