Dream, metaphor, sensuality, fetishism and play are among the defining characteristics of the collection of Surrealist art Julien Levy assembled in the 1930s and 40s. As one of Modernism's preeminent art dealers, Levy's passion went beyond professional protocol, Levy didn't just sell Surrealism, he lived it. Artists he represented were intimate friends and he shared in their creative life. Works by Atget, Arp, Bing, Brassai, Cartier-Bresson, Bellmer, Berman, Bayer, de Chirico, Cocteau, Cornell, Dali, Duchamp, Ernst, Gorky, Hugnet, Kertesz, Man Ray, Matta, Moholy-Nagy, Parry, Roh, Tabard, Tanguy, Cornell, Noguchi, Sougez, Tanning, Tchelitchew, and more.
