Found what I believe to be a small mural done in my Abington, Pa home with the artist's name. The subject is a ship in rough seas, a motif of this old home.
Arthur Smith fraud now selling J. Levi paintings
The same guy who has been flogging fakes by an 'Arthur Smith' (see discussion there) is now selling paintings signed J. Levi and these are being bought and resold as by Julian Levi on ebay and elsewhere. They look the same as his fake smiths but with a slightly different subject and palette and he is painting them on canvas that has been made to look older. so Beware.

I was one of his students at John Bartram High School in Philadelphia
I was in Mr. Levi's senior high art major class from 1963 to 1967. We also went to Widner School for Crippled Children where he taught classes for senior citizens and I posed for endless hours as their model and most of the time I ended up looking like a monkey at a sewing machine or such. LOL. My most touching memory of Mr. Levi was on the day that President John F. Kennedy was assasinated. We both stared out the window of our art class and cried. I found him to be very human and my life has been enriched by having known him.
I have in my possession an oil on canvas painting, signed by artist, 1948, 22x16 inches. Thanks.
Julian Levi was born in New York city in 1900.
