David Levinthal

David Levinthal is one of the most widely exhibited and collected photographic artists in the United States. In 1994, a ten-year survey of his work, Dark Light, was organized by The Photographers’ Gallery in London and traveled throughout the United Kingdom. In 1997, the International Center of Photography in New York presented his first retrospective, David Levinthal: Work from 1977 to 1996. He has received a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship as well as a Guggenheim Fellowship. His work is included in numerous museum collections, including those of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum, Los Angeles; and The Menil Collection, Houston. Writing for the New York Times in the review “Treating Nazis in Art, Even Seriously, Is Risky” on November 25, 1994, Charles Hagen asserted, “What distinguishes Mr. Levinthal’s work is his interest in emotionally charged historical material. But the real force of his images comes not from his choice of subjects but from the way he tells their stories.” David Levinthal is the co-author with Garry Trudeau of Hitler Moves East (Kansas City: Sheed Andrews & McMeel, 1977)
