Levis Fine Art, founded in 1999, specializes in the acquisition, scholarship, exhibition and sale of Pre and Post-War modernist paintings and sculpture.
We are proud to support the artistic legacies of Ibram Lassaw, Beauford Delaney, Jose de Creeft, Herbert Gentry, Elaine de Kooning, Walter Plate, George Grosz, Maurice Golubov, Grace Hartigan, Milton Resnick, Hedda Stern and several other mid-century modernists. They were highly respected by their peers including Willem de Kooning, Ad Reinhardt, Franz Kline, Philip Guston, Joan Mitchell, Adolf Gottlieb and Joseph Albers as well as critics and museums. But as fate would have it, many of them are for the most part still relatively unknown to most collectors today.
This phenomenon, against a backdrop of a major recent commitment by the Terra Foundation to support numerous initiatives for new scholarship presents a significant opportunity for collectors and museums to acquire, expand and share their understanding of the contributions made by so many other artists of the time.
Having a fine reputation for serving museums and private and corporate collectors, Levis fine art is able to privately secure the masterpieces by these under-appreciated artists that are rarely available through auction. We are proud to present them alongside outstanding works by Franz Kline, Alice Neel, Willem de Kooning, Milton Avery, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Archipenko, Thomas Hart Benton, Kenneth Noland, Sam Francis, Theodoros Stamos and Tom Wesselmann.
We have mounted numerous private exhibitions art by all these artists works, while at the same time have been a key party to the organization of museum exhibitions, including most recently, Elaine de Kooning: Portraits which ran from March 2015 to January 2016 at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Please use our website to view a small portion the art we currently have available. All works shown are subject to prior sale. We operate BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, and have private viewing facilities serving both Manhattan and Westchester, both with convenient parking and subway access.
