This handsome book is published to commemorate the centenary of the birth of Julien Levy (1906–1981), one of the most influential proponents of photography and Surrealism during the second quarter of the twentieth century. With over 300 illustrations, including many unfamiliar works by well-known artists, the book presents a stunning survey of Levy's personal collection of photographs. Essays illuminate his pivotal role in promoting both photography and Surrealism in the United States and his impact as a gallerist and tastemaker at a crucial juncture in the development of photography. The publication also includes reproductions of rich archival material related to Levy’s gallery and collection.
