Name of creator
Daphne Korol is a performer and dance instructor who, along with her husband the set and costume designer Taras Korol, has been active in Winnipeg's theatre community for many years. Ms. Korol's ancestors include her great-grandfather Sir Charles Tupper, who was a Father of Confederation and Prime Minister in 1896, and her grandfather, William Johnston Tupper who was the 12th Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba. Ms. Korol, born in Winnipeg, was the only child of Bertrand Stanley-Harris and Emma Tupper. For a time during her childhood, Daphne lived with her mother and grandparents at Government House in Winnipeg while her father remained on the family's fruit plantation outside Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ms. Korol's interest in dance was encouraged by her mother and she studied and performed with companies in South America and Canada before returning to Winnipeg in 1948. Ms. Korol performed in many of the early productions of Rainbow Stage, co-founded Actor's Showcase and founded Shakespeare in the Park and the Children's Dance Theatre. Taras and Daphne Korol have one son, Ivan Michael.
These photographs were donated to the Museum by Daphne Korol in 1986.
Scope and content
With one exception the subjects of these photographs, all dating from around the turn of the century, are not identified. It is not known if the unidentified subjects have any connection with the donor and the photographs were possibly collected as part of the donor's interest in costume. The photographs are all individual studio portraits. Four are portrait busts of women. One is a full length portrait of a woman identified as Katherine Tupper, the granddaughter of Sir Charles Tupper, wearing her 'coming out' dress, ca.1905 - 1910. There is also a full length portrait of a young girl sitting on a stool wearing a floral wreath in her hair and holding a crook.
