Our Toronto Gallery is Now Open at 113 Yorkville Avenue

Some 65 years ago my now late father Walter Klinkhoff began trading in works of art.  He subsequently established Walter Klinkhoff Gallery, ultimately moving to Sherbrooke Street West in Montreal’s Golden Square Mile, only a few blocks from where Galerie Alan Klinkhoff, Montreal, is now located.  With casual assistance in the gallery literally “since the […]

Iconic Borenstein Painting a Symbol of Achievement

Iconic Borenstein Painting a Symbol of Achievement

In Sam Borenstein (1978), Rosshandler and Kuhns write about “la vieille école”, the old school house on Lac Brulé, a few miles from Ste Lucie, which the Borenstein’s rented as their Laurentian cottage and ultimately purchased. They explain that in the period of the 1960s, “Borenstein achieved a fresh exuberance – the tumult and exhilaration […]

1949 Borduas sold by Klinkhoff “magnificent” and “especially rare”

1949 Borduas sold by Klinkhoff “magnificent” and “especially rare”

This magnificent Borduas painting is a fine discovery. Paintings of 1949 are especially rare to come upon. A year after the publication of the manifesto Refus Global, and his suspension from his teaching position at the École du Meuble, 1949 was not an easy year for Borduas. He literally had to live from his painting. For this purpose Le tombeau de la cathédrale défunte was first exhibited in Surrational Painting among nineteen other recent works in an exhibition at the studio of brothers Guy and Jacques Viau (May 14-26).

What a difference a day makes

What a difference a day makes

Even yesterday morning, the gallery space seemed like an empty shell and it looked like there was still much work to be done…no lighting, no hanging equipment, and there were ladders, sheets and workmen everywhere (see yesterday’s post). It hardly felt like an art gallery. One day has changed all that. Yesterday, we hung some […]

Getting close

Getting close

Yesterday, technicians and workers began installing our new state of the art lighting system and today they will start installing the hanging tracks. Tomorrow is the big move.
