Lévy Gorvy embodies values that I most strive for devotion to the highest levels of connoisseurship and quality. With the gallerys unparalleled program and industry reach, I look forward to continuing to work closely with collectors to broaden and refine their collections with the highest quality of works, and to collaborating with artists and estates to reach new audiences and promote works in regions with growing awareness, especially in Asia. I envision tremendous growth opportunities in the upcoming years, and I am excited to contribute my experiences and expertise in this time of change."
