Summary Julien Levy (1906-1981) was one of the most influential art dealers of the twentieth century. The Julien Levy Gallery, which opened in Manhattan in 1931 and closed in 1949, played an essential role in the shift of the cultural avant-garde from Paris to New York. His was the first American gallery to sponsor a show on Surrealism and to champion Neo-Romanticism, Magic Realism, and European photography. This book, which accompanies an exhibition on the Julien Levy Gallery, includes reproductions of paintings, photographs, and film stills from museums and private collections, as well as art and ephemera from Levy's own collection. It offers accounts of Levy and his gallery from several perspectives.
