Arthur Secunda

The Nahan Collection

"His works are in permanent collections of many major museums of the country, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian Museum, the Detroit Institute of Art, and the Phoenix Museum to name just a few. "

In a career that has spanned six decades, Arthur Secunda has been given solo exhibitions in numerous galleries and museums worldwide, including the United States, France, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, and Israel-- plus a traveling exhibition throughout Japan.

Secunda is a master of the abstract landscape, evoking what he calls "symbolic memories.

After extensive studies at the art academies in New York and Paris in the 1940s, he traveled and painted in Italy and Mexico. He exhibited regularly in Los Angeles and San Francisco during the 1960s before returning to New York, where he produced many editions of screenprints and lithographs. From 1968 through the 1980s, Secunda enjoyed numerous exhibitions worldwide. A critic in Montreal aptly described his work as "combining the geometry of New York with the color of California."
