"The Montross Gallery is named after its founder and first director, Newman Emerson Montross (1849−1932). The gallery, which opened in 1878, represented leading American artists of the time, including Thomas Dewing, Abbott Thayer, Dwight William Tryon, Horatio Walker, and Alexander Wyant, and sold work to collectors such as Thomas B. Clark, Charles Lang Freer, George Hearn, and John Johnson. This commitment to the American art movement deepened in the 1900s, when the gallery hosted the annual exhibitions of the Ten. "
