Item description for Marcello Levi: Portrait of a Collector by Maria Centonze, Robert Lumley & Francesco Manacorda...
Every once in a while someone--a collector--has an eye that suits his era perfectly. Marcello Levi's taste has been an ideal match for modern and contemporary Italian art, and his unshakable determination has made him as nearly irresistible to artists and gallerists as their work was to him for nearly 60 years. This catalogue of over 50 paintings, drawings and sculptures from Levi's collection makes clear just how good his judgment and timing were. From Futurist drawings and the work of Surrealist masters like Man Ray to early Arte Povera, Levi's incredible foresight allowed him to gather a remarkable body of work, most of which has rarely been shown. Includes a conversation curated by Maria Centonze, author of Marcello Levi: A Collector and the Laws of Chance, and works by Mario Merz, Alghiero Boetti, Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Paul Klee, and Kurt Schwitters.
