It was founded in 1898 by author and poet Charles DeKay, the literary and art critic for the New York Times.

The Club's membership has included three U.S. Presidents: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Among the distinguished painters who have been members are Robert Henri, Frederic Remington, William Merritt Chase and Cecilia Beaux.
