Peter Leventhal was born in New York City in 1939 and grew up in Brooklyn. His father was a textile designer. Peter loved the museums and libraries of the city, loved his father's studio, and taught himself to draw from old masterpieces in the New York Public Library print room. His first show was of drawings at Martin Reimart's drawing shop on Christopher Street in 1959.He went to Paris in 1960, and later returned to New York and lived in Chinatown. 

One of his greatest influences was German artist Max Beckmann. His early work is very polished and carefully rendered, though he gradually loosened into the expressionist exuberance he demonstrates today. One of the highlights of Peter's career was being invited to exihibit several pieces from a series dealing with Mexican history at the Granaditas de Alhondiga in Guanajuato. He's had more than forty solo exhibitions in New York, France, Florida and Mexico.
