Death of Delphine Levy, Executive Director of Paris Musées

Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, and Christophe Girard, her deputy for culture and president of Paris Musées, are deeply saddened by the sudden death of Delphine Levy, Executive Director of Paris Musées, on Monday 13 July 2020.

They would both like to pay personal tribute to this woman of vision and of culture, who was gifted with extraordinary determination.
Her death is a profound loss for the world of culture, the City of Paris, and all the staff of Paris Musées.

Delphine Levy was involved in the creation and evolution of Paris Musées since its inception. It is thanks to her intelligence, dynamism, and unfailing commitment, that today the museums of the City of Paris are renowned both nationally and internationally.

A graduate of Sciences Po and a former student of the École Nationale d’Administration, Delphine Levy also worked with Martine Aubry, Minister for Labour, Bertrand Delanoë, Mayor of Paris, and Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, before devising and then leading the Établissement Public Paris Musées. Passionate about art history, she was an expert on the English painter Walter Sickert.

The Mayor of Paris extends her most sincere condolences to Delphine Levy’s family and friends, and sends her respects in the name of all elected Parisian officials and all of the city’s administration.
