David Levine self-portraitWhen David Levine, painter and caricaturist, passed away in December of 2009, an outpouring of obituaries and articles confirmed what had already been suggested during his remarkable career: he was one of the greats.

During the period in which he summered in Westport, 1956-1977, he matured as a painter and blossomed into a world-renowned caricaturist who influenced cultural dialogue. He had an expression that, for him, united his two bodies of work. “I love my species.”
