“Wonderful building”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

The new Leventis Art Gallery in Nicosia is housed in a spectacular building near the old walls of the city. The building is a fully-fitted, modern art gallery with well-designed spaces and all the security and environmental controls you would expect. The best parts of the collection are to be found in the Paris rooms, especially those paintings representing the Impressionist and later movements. The rest of the collection is, frankly, a little hum drum. Somehow the other artworks lack passion. There is a good cafe and a shop with the usual museum quality gifties and books. It's good for an afternoon away from the more obvious attractions of Nicosia and certainly a pleasure to see modern museum standards in Cyprus.

“A jewel in Nicosia”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Nicosia needed something as unique as the A.G. Leventis Gallery. Whether living in Cyprus or just visiting it is worthwhile spending some hours there.

The Gallery is open every day except Tuesday 10:00-17:00 | Wednesday 10:00-22:00. It has three main galleries (greek, french and cypriot collections) but you also see fine chinese porcelain and other displays offering a rich cultural "bath" !

There is also a very good restaurant with excellent service where one can eat or just relax with a cup of coffee. Most reasonable prices and a unique menu.

“A new jewel in Cyprus' cultural crown”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

This brand new art gallery is a must for culture vultures. Located in Nicosia, it is housed in a modern building designed by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley. It houses the art collection (plus other artifacts) of Anastasios G. Leventis, one of Cyprus' most celebrated philanthropists.

There are 3 main galleries which house the permanent exhibitions; the Greek, Cypriot and Paris collections, a gift shop, lecture halls There is also a first rate restaurant, Pinakothiki, on the ground floor which is becoming a magnet for Nicosians and has had first rate reviews in the local press. I was astonished by the eclectic mix of the collections and there is a wonderful recreation of Leventis' study in his Paris appartment. Expect to see works by El Greco, Murillo, Canaletto, Guardi , Gainsborough, Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Pissarro, Also fine Chinese porcelain, Meissen and Sévres wares are on display as are excellent examples of Louis XV and Louis XVI furniture. If you love the Wallace Collection in London, you will surely enjoy this.
