Finding Home: The Diniacopoulos Family and Collection Paperback / softback

Edited by Clarence Epstein, Imogen Bryant

Part of the The Diniacopoulos Collection series

Description

Vincent and Olga Diniacopoulos were guardians of what has become one of the most important collections of antiquities in Canada.

This book recounts the story of their immigration in the early 1950s, from France to Montreal, and how they sought to establish a home not only for themselves and their son, but also for their spectacular collection of artworks.

The lives of the Diniacopoulos family spanned the entirety of the twentieth century, and through their passion for art, their intellectual and cultural lives also reached back into Egyptian, Greek, and Roman antiquity.

The immense geographic scope of the story of this cosmopolitan couple is set against the backdrop of a quickly changing Quebec society in the post World War Two era, as well as being inseparable from their encyclopaedic collection of art objects and artefacts.
