Stewart S. MacDermott Biographical Information
I am compiling biographical information on Stewart Sinclair MacDermott and would welcome any information anyone has on the artist. I would especially like to see photos of his work front and back. I have seen a number of references to his work as an etcher going back to Mallet’s reference in 1935 but have not been able verify that he actually was ever involved in etching.

Born in 1889, the only child of a wealthy textile importer, Stewart lived in a grand home on New York’s Upper West Side. He attended Columbia University and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1914. His father died in 1913. I can find no reference that he ever had to work for a living. In the 1920’s he took several extended steamship cruises to Europe and the Mediterranean and along this time he started listing himself as a full time artist. By at least the mid 1920’s he had studio space at the famous 51 West 10th Street studio and references have him living a block away and working at the studio until the mid-1930’s. The studio space was purchased by a cooperative of artists in 1920 and demolished in 1956. I would be very interested if anyone had information regarding his studio space. Did he rent or was he a cooperative owner? I have one painting in my collection, the Landscape with Mill (see auction results for 3/12/10 Stair Gallery askart’s auction results) that has the 51 West 10th address stenciled on the stretcher. Stewart never married, he died in 1966 in Salisbury, Connecticut. The Stewart S. MacDermott Foundation has funded the purchase of artwork for Met.
