The history of the A. G. Leventis Gallery

The A. G. Leventis Gallery brings the grandeur of European art from the Renaissance to the 20th century to the heart of Nicosia, connecting the European continent with its south-eastern outpost by highlighting the unique relationship between art and its history. The Gallery’s Collections demonstrate that the celebration of beauty cuts across nationalities, historical periods and styles to constitute a shared inspiration evoked by artists to communicate with the viewer. Art unfolds in a space where, regardless of their origin, artists contribute to a better understanding of their own achievements and of European art more generally.

Anastasios G. Leventis wanted the art he collected and loved during his lifetime to be enjoyed by his compatriots and envisioned a fine arts museum that would make a lasting contribution to his homeland. Since its inauguration in 2014, the A. G. Leventis Gallery has played – and continues to play – an important role in the development of Cypriot society. The space and the works of art it houses take us beyond our borders, bringing to mind the culture and ideals of Europe.
