Landscape With Figures by Gaspard Dughet
Tree of Life by Rimma Gerlovina and Valeriy Gerlovin
||In the short time since their arrival in Chapel Hill, Richard and Susan Levy
have made a significant difference in the life of the Ackland Art Museum. Dr. Levy, former
president of the New Orleans Museum of Art and former visiting committee chair at the
Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College, and his wife bring a wealth of experience
and knowledge in the arts to Carolina. Their
generous gift of the 1665 French painting "Landscape With Figures" by Gaspard
Dughet in honor of the museum's 40th anniversary is a notable addition to the Ackland's
old master gallery.
In addition, the Levys have several important works on loan
to the museum, including the 1989 photograph "Tree of Life" by Rimma Gerlovina
and Valeriy Gerlovin, which was featured in the summer exhibition "Identity Revealed:
Meaning and Message in Contemporary Art."
