About Edward and Deborah Pollack
Edward and Deborah Pollack have been in the art world for over thirty-five years as prominent art collectors and dealers of fine nineteenth and early twentieth-century American art. Their gallery represents the estate of the Orville Bulman. The Pollacks are devoted to preserving Bulman's legacy and reawakening interest in his art on a worldwide basis.
In the early 1970s Edward's gallery was The Pollack Gallery on Madison Avenue in New York City and he was known by his colleagues to have the best eye in the business. Deborah, after graduating with honors from Temple University, was a private art dealer, D. Courtney Fine Art, based in New York and Pennsylvania.
In 1981 they married and merged their businesses to create Edward and Deborah Pollack Fine Art. Their gallery is located at 205 Worth Avenue, Suite 202, in Palm Beach, Florida.
Art dealer, author, and lecturer, Deborah C. Pollack was born in Philadelphia. She began fine-art dealing as a hobby at the age of sixteen and has been researching art history ever since. (During the 1970s she was also a New York television actress known as Deborah Courtney.) Deborah Pollack is the author of Inspired Whimsy: The Genius of Orville Bulman, and the best-selling monograph on the artist, Orville Bulman: An Enchanted Life and Fantastic Legacy. In January 2005, Deborah gave a lecture and slide presentation on the art of Orville Bulman at The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach. She gave a lecture and slide presentation on January 25, 2006 on "Florida Artists-1860-1980" at the same venue. It was so successful that there was standing room only. She presented another lecture on Orville Bulman at the Grand Rapids Art Museum on September 29, 2006 followed by a book signing which was a huge success, as was the lecture and book signing at the Society of the Four Arts on January 24, 2007. She has lectured on Palm Beach artists at the Lost Tree Club and the Rotary Club. Deborah presented "Painters of the Flagler Era" in April 2009 for the St. Augustine Art Association.
