The oldest professional Art Club in the nation. Collection Salmagundi Club.
The Salmagundi Club was founded in 1871 by Jonathan Scott Hartley. It was purchased this mid-nineteenth century brownstone house on 5th Avenue, at 12th Street, in 1917 as its second home. It was cited in 1957 for its architectural distinction by the Society of Architectural Historians and the Municipal Art Society.
Through the years the Club has been a singular gathering place for such great artists as Childe Hassam, William Merrit Chase, Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Louis Betts, Ogden Pleisner, Clifford D. Young and many others.
Honorary Members have included such luminaries such as Sir Winston Churchill, Buckminister Fuller, Paul Cadmus, Al Hirschfeld, and Sir Edwin Manton.
