In 2003, the Jewish Museum Berlin presented sixty works by the painter, author, and Resistance fighter, Carlo Levi (1902–1975). The exhibition was organized by the Fondazione Carlo Levi and the Jewish Museum Frankfurt to honor his 100th birthday.
The exhibition catalog presents selected work by the trained doctor who was actively involved throughout his life in the struggle against fascism, which he engaged in at the price of several arrests and two years' exile. Levi also addressed social themes passionately in much of his art. Political commitment and tireless efforts on behalf of impoverished farmers and laborers defined his life. Portraits of friends both obscure and famous are featured, among them Frank Lloyd Wright, Ilja Ehrenburg, and Pablo Neruda.
