The Art Gallery of Ontario acquires the Malcolmson Collection of Photography

The Malcolmson Collection, a grouping of 268 vintage photographic works by 110 significant 19th and 20th century artists, will soon be part of the AGO’s photography archive.  The Collection, created by Ann and Harry Malcolmson, is regarded as one of the most important historical photography assemblages in private hands in Canada.  <PHOTOS BELOW – the Malcolmsons by Christopher Wahl for Toronto Life magazine>

“Ann and I are thrilled,” said Harry Malcolmson. “Thanks to the AGO’s intervention, the Collection will not be dispersed and will be publicly available for generations to come.”  Home to more than 80,000 works of art, the Art Gallery of Ontario, 317 Dundas Street West, is among the most distinguished art museums in North America.
