    Beaver Hall Group Exhibition and Sale

    Beaver Hall Group Exhibition and Sale

    With the impending exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) 1920s Modernism in Montreal, The Beaver Hall Group, it is our intention to complement the exposure the exhibition gives to these fine artists by offering for sale some outstanding and important works by several of these artists at the Alan Klinkhoff Gallery in both Montreal and Toronto. The museum’s exhibition portends to be a wonderful and informative one, accompanied by an extensively researched catalogue - one I think 4 or 5 years in preparation. For our part, we would simply like to relate how the Klinkhoff family has been singing the praises of these artists and others for several decades now by preparing dozens of non-selling exhibitions in their honour, advising collectors to purchase their work, and acting for some of their estates selling their work. Whereas in some cases we may have been a generation removed from the artist himself or herself, in others we, Dad at any rate, was current with many of their careers.

  • Memorable Borenstein Returns After Fifty Years
    Walter Klinkhoff reflected on 'The Pink Bouquet' in his memoirs Sam Borenstein's 'The Pink Bouquet', 13 August, 1960 was described by Walter Klinkhoff in his memoirs and was one of his more memorable and controversial sales. Over fifty years later we are pleased to offer it to a new generation of collectors. In 1993 my now-late grandfather published a collection of his memoirs in a limited edition of 600 copies. In it he reflected on his relationships with artists like A.Y. Jackson , Arthur Lismer , Marc-Aurèle Fortin and important collectors like the Late Kenneth Thomson, John A. MacAuley and E.P. Taylor. At the gallery we are privileged to be able to read his accounts and, on occasion, share a special and relevant anecdote. Those who are familiar with our gallery over the years will have heard of Sam Borenstein . My grandfather was always an enthusiastic supporter of Borenstein's painting. He hosted two selling exhibitions for Borenstein while the...
  • We continue to be convinced that in most cases selling outstanding works of art by private treaty sales, that is with a fine art dealer gallery, you can minimize or even eliminate your financial risk. Just reviewing the results of three important auction sales that have taken place within the ten days prior to writing this, my conclusion is that what Canadian art auctioneers indisputably do better than any commercial art gallery I know of in Canada is write press releases.

  • On May 20, 1964, just before departing for her summer retreat at Strawberry Hill, Nora Collyer wrote to Walter Klinkhoff: "This is just to thank you for having the exhibition of my paintings, and to acknowledge the cheque for $683...". The Nora Collyer exhibition at Klinkhoff ran from April 20 to May 2, 1964. At that time, prices ranged from $90 for a small panel to $420 for the largest canvas. In '64, even at these modest prices, paintings by the Beaver Hall artists were difficult to sell.

    2009 Autumn Wrap Up

    It has been for us an exciting and gratifying fall season.  We began with our 36th annual non-selling exhibition, this one a tribute to Paul Vanier Beaulieu, an important modern artist, active primarily from the end of World War II until his passing.  This display of especially fine paintings, watercolours, and etchings provided sound visual evidence as to why Beaulieu merited celebration in the company of important emerging modern artists as early as the late 1940s, both in France and here in Canada.  

  • In a showing of enthusiasm that recalled the time when gallery vernissages brought hours-long line-ups and even the occasional shoving match, buyers, friends and supporters crammed into Galerie Walter Klinkhoff on Monday night to attend Laurie Campbell's inaugural exhibition and sale

  • BERNARD MENDELMAN THE SUBURBAN Wednesday, September 9, 1998 'This is our tribute to dad', commented Alan Klinkhoff on Homage to Walter Klinkhoff, Part 1. Alan and his brother Eric have selected about 25 exceptional pieces, prior to 1950, that are amongst the cream of Canadian art. They were chosen from deceased artists their father personally knew or made a market in. Most of them are borrowed from collections that Mr. Klinkhoff helped formulate. His motto was always: 'What they buy is their business, what I sell is mine.' A long time resident of Hampstead, Mr. Klinkhoff, who died last year, started selling art in 1949, from a second floor duplex on Van Horne. He then moved to Union Ave. before settling in 1959 at the present location, on Sherbrooke St., where he established himself as one of the country’s foremost dealers. The estates of Clarence Gagnon and Randolph Hewton were both handled by Mr. Klinkhoff. It was right pickings after...

    Walter Klinkhoff’s Contribution Will Live On

    THE GAZETTE, MONTREAL November 11, 1997

    Walter Klinkhoff, who died last Friday at the age of 78, left his indelible mark on the city he loved, Montreal. The gallery that bears its founder’s name lives on, one of Montreal’s oldest, having outlived numerous other art spaces and countless trends. The Klinkhoff, which focuses largely on Canadian figurative art, has a distinct personality. It stands for dignity, even with a touch of ceremony, but without pretense. Ragged art students are as welcome as pin-striped collectors.

    Klinkhoff Honours Overlooked Painter: Sarah Robertson

    Klinkhoff Honours Overlooked Painter: Sarah Robertson
    Montrealer Robertson deserved a better fate ANN DUNCAN - Gazette Art Critic THE GAZETTE Saturday, September 12, 1991 Montreal painter Sarah Robertson has all but fallen through the cracks of history. After all, it has been 40 years since she was accorder her only solo exhibition. Organized by the National Gallery of Canada, it took place three years after she dies at the age of 57. But the current Robertson retrospective at the Galerie Walter Klinkhoff proves that she deserves a better fate than as just a footnote in some obscure art book. Robertson took risks, often had a deft touch with colours and had her own particular vision, no matter what the subject. While her work varies in quality, it is easy to see from this exhibition of 56 oils and watercolours the strength of Robertson's commitment to her art and to stretching her limits. Referring to Group of Seven colleagues Lawren Harris and Edwin Holgate , A.Y. Jackson...
