Gallerist, advisor, and collector Dominique Lévy opened her eponymous gallery in January 2013. Prior to the gallery, she launched the Private Sales department at Christie’s and was its International Director from 1999 to 2003. In 2003, she established Dominique Lévy Fine Art, a boutique advisory service with a focus on building long-term relationships with collectors. Lévy co-founded L&M Arts in 2005, with locations in New York and Los Angeles. The bi-coastal gallery provided comprehensive client art services and organized historically important exhibitions of modern and postwar art such as Tanguy Calder: Between Surrealism and Abstraction (2010) and Tom Wesselmann: The Sixties (2006), as well as new work by such artists as David Hammons and Paul McCarthy.
Dominique Lévy specializes in twentieth-century European and American art —including the works of Alexander Calder, Willem de Kooning, Alberto Giacometti, Yves Klein, Pablo Picasso, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol, among others— with a program that explores global tendencies in modern and contemporary art through curated exhibitions, original scholarship, and new publications. The gallery currently represents the Estate of Yves Klein, the Estate of Roman Opalka, and the Estate of Germaine Richier in the United States, as well as artists Enrico Castellani, Pierre Soulages, Frank Stella, and Günther Uecker. With offices in New York, London, and Geneva, the gallery also oversees private sales in the secondary market; provides advisory and collection management services; and participates in art fairs internationally, including the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, Frieze Masters in London, and all three Basel art fairs—Miami Beach, Hong Kong, and Switzerland.
