In this episode of Expert Voices, Sotheby’s Vice Chairman Simon Shaw explores the innovative artistic pairings created by renowned Dallas collector, Irvin Levy. Works by artists including Pierre Bonnard, Gustave Caillebotte and Paul Gauguin are seamlessly joined with Contemporary icons like Gerhard Richter and Joan Mitchell, creating dialogues that celebrate the act of painting. Despite having been executed decades apart, these richly worked canvases demonstrate Mr. Levy’s eye for color and light in a way that transcends any one movement or school. Sotheby’s is honored to offer Lumières: The Levy Family Collection across our Impressionist, Modern & Contemporary auctions this May.
