€20 Million Art Gallery Opens in Nicosia

With more than 800 works by major artists from Cyprus, Greece and Europe, the A.G. Leventis Gallery opened in Nicosia last month.

The Gallery, which owns the largest collection of European art in Cyprus, cost over €20 million, making it one of the biggest projects undertaken in Nicosia in recent years.

A long-standing vision of Anastasios G. Leventis was to establish a Museum of Fine Arts in his homeland where people would be able to enjoy the works that he had collected over a period of many years. For this purpose, he established a Trust which would provide the necessary funds for the creation of the gallery and to cover its running costs.

The gallery’s highlights include numerous works by celebrated artists such as El Greco, Canaletto, Boucher, Renoir, Sisley, Monet, Chagall, Utrillo, Volanakis, Rallis, Moralis, Parthenis, Diamantis and Kissonergis. The A.G. Leventis Gallery has already received international attention, including an enthusiastic article in the Financial Times which noted that “It is a handsome building, filled with exceptional art, a place of rigorous international scholarship, of contemplation and…potentially of inspiration too.”
