ABSTRACT:Business and exhibition records, artist information, and ephemera document the operations of Chicago-based Benjamin Galleries from 1940 to 1979.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION:Printed papers, correspondence, black and white photographic prints and color photographic prints.
ORIGINATION: Benjamin Galleries, Chicago, Illinois
ACQUISITION INFORMATION:The collection was donated by Neva Krohn in 1996.

HISTORICAL NOTE:
Dr. Benjamin Krohn (1904-1957), a Chicago dentist, was an accomplished painter, exhibiting in The Art Institute of Chicago's "Chicago and Vicinity Artists" shows five times between 1938 and 1950. Encouraged by Daniel Catton Rich and Carl Schniewind, he opened the Benjamin Galleries in 1939 with a desire to sell good art in a broad price range and in informal surroundings.

The original gallery was located at 222 E. Ontario, in Dr. Krohn's apartment. Later, the Galleries moved to 154 E. Superior Street, again occupying a portion of Krohn's apartment. In his gallery he initially exhibited School of Paris artists; at the outset of World War II he began to feature local artists, including Gertrude Abercrombie, Ellen Lanyon, Eleanor Coen, Aaron Bohrod, and Roland Ginzel. After Krohn's death in 1957, his wife Neva continued to operate the gallery, at 900 N. Michigan Avenue, exhibiting established American painters and sculptors, plus an international group of graphic artists. In May, 1979, she sold the Galleries to Orville C. Beattie.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
The collection includes business records, exhibition announcements, catalogues, reviews, personal and professional correspondence, photographs, and other ephemera documenting the operation of the Benjamin Galleries and the artists represented by the Galleries.

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT:
SERIES I: ARTISTS' FILES. Arranged alphabetically by artist's name.

SERIES II: GALLERY AND PERSONAL PAPERS. Business and gallery records and related publications are followed by photographs, personal correspondence, and miscellany. Materials are arranged alphabetically or chronologically within each subsection.

SERIES III: ARTISTS' CARDS ALBUM. This collection of artists' cards had been separately mounted in a large portfolio, and has been kept as a discrete group. The largest number of cards are Christmas holiday greetings, and are organized alphabetically by artist's name when known; if the artist is unidentified, the card is filed in the series by the sender's name. A miscellaneous collection of cards and announcements is located at the end of this inventory.
