About Arthur Secunda

"Arthur Secunda was born in New Jersey in 1927. His career in art has been marked by international recognition in many fields - painter, sculptor, teacher, critic and printmaker.

In 1947, after a year in the U.S. Air Force as a staff artist, he attended New York University and the Art Students League in New York where he studied with Harry Sternberg, Reginald Marsh and Julian Levi. He later continued his education in Paris and Rome where he studied sculpture with Ossip Zadkine and painting with Andre L'Hote. Secunda spent the following year in Mexico working at the Esmeralda Escuela de Pintura y Escultura, where he learned the art of woodcarving and woodcut printing.

Secunda has held many interesting jobs which have included museum curator of education at the Santa Barbara Art Museum, university instructor and lecturer at UCLA, the Pasadena Art Museum, Otis Art Institute and the Palm Springs Desert Museum. In addition he produced a weekly TV program entitled "Arts of All Times," and was the founding editor of Artforum magazine in Los Angeles in 1963.

Secunda's first one man show was at the Galerie Lucien Gout in Montpellier in 1950. Since that time, he has exhibited widely all over the United States, Europe and Japan in over 150 galleries, museums and universities, as well as major art fairs in New York and Paris."
