THE LEVY COLLECTION: it is from here that the world unfolds

A reconsideration of the Herman H. Levy Collection and Bequest spanning five centuries of historical, modern and contemporary art focused primarily on the European canon. Instead of constructing a linear historical survey, individual works and groupings provide points of departure for alternative narratives reflecting transcultural exchange and re-orientations. Presented in recognition of the Levy Collection’s return to McMaster following its cross-Canada tour in the exhibition, A Cultivating Journey highlighting significant artworks donated by the Hamilton businessman and philanthropist in 1984.
