Paule M. Anglim ( –2015)

Paule M. Anglim, a contemporary art dealer in San Francisco, died Thursday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Kenneth Baker and Sam Whiting. Anglim’s shows, which featured the likes of David Ireland, Paul Kos, Tom Marioni, and Jim Melchert, helped articulate Beat-era Conceptualism in the Bay Area.

Anglim discovered John Beech, Nayland Blake, Vincent Fecteau, and John Zurier, among others, at the beginning of their careers. She opened Gallery Paule Anglim in the early 1970s in North Beach, then after a little more than a decade moved to Fourteen Geary Street.

Said the painter Robert Bechtle, represented by Anglim for twenty-five years, “She was very well connected to both the old postwar community of artists of the 1930s and young artists in the Bay Area.” He added: “She was in a rather unique position because she knew so many people and she kept up with what was going on in the contemporary art world.”
