Admin History/Bio
In 1967, Ben and Yael Dunkelman opened the Dunkelman Gallery near the intersection of Bedford and Bloor streets in Toronto. Intending to provide a forum for contemporary art, the Dunkelmans organized large exhibitions and sculpture shows on the works of such artists as Picasso, Henri, Dubuffet and Davis. The gallery, which ran from 1967 to 1973, championed a variety of art, from the avant-garde to older work by the early Twentieth Century School of Paris painters.
Scope and Content
Sub-Series consists of a photograph of Ben Dunkelman and his father at the gallery, a newspaper clipping about the opening of the gallery, and correspondence between Dunkelman and Jerusalem mayor Teddy Kollek about the possibility of a Picasso museum in Jerusalem.
Notes
Associated Material: The Dunkelman Gallery Fonds at the National Archives of Canada consists of 1.5 m of textual and graphic records ranging in date from 1959 to 1979.
