WILLIAM KURELEK: JEWISH LIFE IN CANADA
Kurelek’s suite of paintings titled “Jewish Life in Canada” was made to honour his friendship with the Toronto art dealer Avrom Isaacs, who offered the artist a framing job at his gallery before discovering his employee’s remarkable creative gifts. A devout Roman Catholic, Kurelek intended “Jewish Life in Canada” as a gesture across the cultural divide, implicitly demonstrating his open-mindedness toward Canadians of cultural and religious backgrounds different from his own.
