Moses Levy was born in North Africa, but moved in 1900 to Italy and spent most of his life in Tuscany. The colors, the people, and the town of how it was 100 years ago, is perfectly represented in his paintings. Levy was also part of a group of artists that decided to paint outside to capture the nature light, shade, and color. Levy also studied in Lucca but, kept returning to Tuscany to capture its essence.
Because of his Jewish background, Levy was forced to leave Italy in WWII and returned to Viareggio and died in 1968.
