Dreaming in Black and White: Photography at the Julien Levy Gallery
June 17, 2006 - September 17, 2006, Philadelphia Museum of Art
This exhibition celebrates the centenary of the birth of prominent art dealer Julien Levy (1906–1981), one of the most influential and colorful proponents of modern art and photography and an impassioned champion of Surrealism, with a survey of his collection of photographs. Levy's lifelong devotion to the art of photography is represented in more than 230 photographs, many of which are being exhibited for the first time in more than five decades.
