Under either name, Levier is one of the most famous and historically significant artists of the twentieth century. Born in 1920 in Corsica from a French father and an American mother, Levier was interested and skilled in art from an early age. He grew up with a love of painting and began his formal art education at the age of 17 at L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris studying with Andrew Lhote and Georges Rouault. He opened his first exhibit in Lyons in 1949 and his first American Exhibition in Los Angeles in 1950. His art was heavily influenced by Cubism and attributes the work of Pablo Picasso as his major artistic influence. After that time, Levier’s art became extremely popular in America as well as Europe and he would split his time between California and his home in France. He quickly became a favorite artist among celebrities counting Frank Sinatra and Jackie Kennedy as collectors. Charles Levier’s unique artistic style is credited for helping propel the artist to widespread popularity. He often painted women, still life work, and landscapes although his figure paintings are his most famous and critically acclaimed. The direct influence of cubism and La Belle Époque on Levier’s art gives it a distinctly French style, although the subject matter appealed to both French and American audiences. Today, Charles Levier’s work can be seen in museums around the world including the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. Levier’s career lasted more than 40 years and he produced a tremendous body of paintings during that time. The artist passed away in 2003, but his art continues to outlive him and maintains great popularity in Europe and America today. Levier's widow continues today to be a UES resident in New York. less
