The A. G. Leventis Gallery brings the grandeur of European art from the Renaissance to the 20th century, connecting the European continent with its south-eastern outpost by highlighting the unique relationship between art and its history.
In this book, Director Loukia Hadjigavriel selects highlights from the Collection. From the outstanding paintings and objets d’art
- Old Master paintings, Dutch still lifes, light-spirited Rococo pastorals, and boldly coloured pointillist and fauve canvases; through the Gold Collection, where gold coins from antiquity unfold the history of the rulers and artists who created them; and into the development of modern Greek art, as well as the first generation of Cypriot artists from the beginning of the 20th century.
This wide variety of treasures all offer insight into the world of the man behind the collection, Anastasios G. Leventis – businessman, visionary, art collector and true ‘citizen of the world’.
