Following the death of Italian Jewish writer and chemist Primo Levi in 1987, New York artist Larry Rivers was commissioned to paint a portrait of Levi by Fiat magnate Gianni Agnelli, who attended the same Turin high school as Levi. Rivers created three paintings that in addition to portraying Levi, highlighted the Nazi extermination of the Jewish people. The paintings, still the property of the Agnelli family, are on loan to Rome’s Jewish Museum and are accompanied by photographs and documents belonging to Levi.
