Can fine art be functional? Yes, when it’s at Levenger

Pen a letter, jot a note, settle in comfortably for a read. And pursue these pleasures with fine art as your backdrop. Thanks to our partnership with the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Levenger is able to bring you functional pieces that feature fine-art reproductions you can’t find anywhere else.

Alma Thomas Rollerball

If you are drawn to vibrant colors and bold strokes, let the Alma Thomas Rollerball blossom in your hand. Alma Woodsey Thomas (1891-1978) was the first African-American artist to have a solo show at the Whitney museum. She was also the first graduate of Howard University’s art department. Her canvas of Iris, Tulips, Jonquils and Crocusesbursts forth beautifully on this pen.

If French Impressionism is a favorite genre, you’ll probably enjoy our Berthe Morisot collection. Morisot was a contemporary of Monet and an equally fine painter, but alas, the women didn’t always receive the recognition that their male counterparts did. But Morisot (1841-1895) enjoys plenty of recognition from Levenger.

The green and gold palette of her painting The Cage inspired a new True Writer (fountain, roller and ballpoint). The image also graces the sides of a note cube.

A full reproduction can be found on our reader’s pillow—lovely to look at, and with a handy magazine pocket in back. These pleasing palettes also perform.
