DESCRIPTION:  In 1895, a show at the Petit Gallery, Paris, of around 25 pastel and 5 paintings, instantly established Lévy-Dhurmer’s reputation in Paris. One critic exclaimed ‘a youth, a debutant and also a master, asking rhetorically if the artist was ‘Symbolist, Mystic, or Romantic?’ Another critic likened him to ‘da Vinci, Botticelli and Memling, the ancients, the moderns…’ Lévy-Dhurmer continued working as a celebrated portraitist, draughtsman, pastelist and painter of religious, genre, symbolist and landscape paintings until the second World War.

Large scale gallery shows were organized to celebrate Lévy-Dhurmer’s career in 1927, and again in 1937; upon the artist’s death in 1952 a retrospective exhibition was organized by the French Museums in Paris. More recently again, a further exhibition was organised by the Louvre at the Grand Palais in 1973, Autour de Lévy-Dhurmer, to celebrate the acquisition of a group of major pastels which now hang in the Musée d’Orsay.
