Dorothea Rabkin, 87, Collector 9Folk Art) Dies N.Y. Times

The cause was complications of Parkinson’s disease, her husband, Leo Rabkin, said.

Starting not long after their marriage in 1958, the Rabkins spent decades scouring flea markets and secondhand shops. They acquired some

items, including paintings by self-taught black artists like Sam Doyle
and Mose Tolliver.
