Text engl. - Published on the occasion of the traveling exhibition Accommodations of Desire: Surrealist Works on Paper Collected by Julien Levy. - Dream, metaphor, sensuality, fetishism and play are among the defining characteristics of the collection of surrealist art Julien Levy assembled in the 1930s and 40s. As one of modernism's preeminent art dealers, Levy's passion went beyond professional protocol, Levy didn't just sell surrealism, he lived it.
