Buy from Klinkhoff to assure quality, value and unsurpassed expertise

Randolph Hewton’s “Winter, Charlevoix County” (oil on canvas 20 x 24 ins), is a rare and outstanding canvas by the master, who was a friend of the Group of Seven artists and one of three guests to exhibit in the first Group of Seven exhibition in 1920.

Buyers from Galerie Walter Klinkhoff receive:

  • Unsurpassed Expertise and Quality: We have been operating under the same ownership for over 60 years with unique first-hand and proprietary knowledge. By buying from us you are assured of reliability, authenticity and quality in what is an excellent group of works of art vetted by respected experts in the field of Canadian and European painting.
  • Value and the benefit of market experience: Buy at a fixed price on the basis of “fair market value”. Galerie Walter Klinkhoff has three generations of the Klinkhoff family active to serve and advise collectors, and over 60 years of experience transacting paintings in the Canadian art market.
  • Aligned interests: We invest our own money in the works of art we buy and sell, and of course, hang them on our walls. Our confidence in these works is absolute. We purchase only works of art we believe our clients are well served to buy.

At Galerie Walter Klinkhoff, expertise in recognizing authenticity and quality works of art is the result of decades of dealing with artwork by many of Canada’s most important artists. The Klinkhoff family sold works directly on behalf of these artists and/or their estates: Molly Lamb and Bruno Bobak, Paul-Émile Borduas, Sam Borenstein, Frederick Simpson Coburn, Nora Collyer, Berthe des Clayes, Marc Aurèle Fortin, Clarence Alphonse Gagnon, Prudence Heward, Randolph Hewton, Edwin Holgate, A.Y. Jackson, Jean-Paul Lemieux, Arthur Lismer, John Little, Kathleen Morris, Robert Pilot, Anne Savage, René Richard, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Goodridge Roberts, and Frederick B. Taylor.

In addition to our associations with artists and/or their Estates Galerie Walter Klinkhoff has prepared and presented almost 40 museum-style retrospective exhibitions.  With a view in mind to studying them and sharing their virtues with others in the art community these annual non-selling shows feature an important selection of works by one or another Canadian artist who we admire. We have undertaken this visual and academic study of several of the artists mentioned above as well as Emily Carr, Adrien Hébert, David Milne, M.A. Suzor-Coté and Albert H. Robinson to name only a selection.

For more than 35 years Eric Klinkhoff has been preparing the catalogue raisonné of the work of the important Canadian impressionist Maurice Cullen.

The Gallery represents a select group of established investment quality contemporary artists, each original in style and painting with the utmost integrity. We are of the opinion that each is making a unique contribution to the field of Canadian art of this generation. We select from them the finest works available and encourage an admiring public to add these artists to their budding collections.
