The Soceity of American Artists was formed in 1877; artists known as "The Ten" began to exhibit as a group in 1898; those who came to be called "The Eight" banded together in 1908 for a seminal independent exhibition at William Macbeth's gallery; and 1913 saw the accomplishment of the International Exhibition of Modern Art (the Armory Show).
