Catalogue Note

In 1977 Leibowitz was working as an art dealer at one of New York City's oldest art galleries and through his family connections the young Leibowitz was catapulted into the vibrant Manhattan art world, befriending contemporaries like Warhol, as well as established artists like Salvador Dalí and Norman Rockwell. Although initially working in the art world, Leibowitz found his passion in real estate law. He was one of the pioneering developers who invested in property in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen district and in the Upper West Side.
