History

Vikentios “Vincent” Diniacopoulos was born in 1886 in Constantinople, Turkey. He died in Montreal in 1967. Vincent’s ethnic background was Greek, and he had French nationality. He studied at a Catholic college and then worked for an antiquarian in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, probably until the Turkish Revolution that took place prior to World War I. He probably immigrated to Egypt around that time.
He met Hélène Olga Nicolas. They got married in the mid- to late-1920s and moved to France after. Vincent did active work during the World War II. The Diniacopoulos family had a gallery that sold antiquities in Paris. The date of opening of the gallery is unknown, but it seems to have closed before they immigrated to Montreal in 1951.
After Olga, Vincent and their son Denis moved to Montreal, they opened the Ars Classica gallery. It was active in the 1950s and 1960s.
