Biography   Sonia Sekula


Born in Switzerland of a Swiss mother and a Hungarian father, she came with her parents to the U.S. in 1936.  She attended George Grosz's private art school on Long Island and enrolled at the Art Students League, studying with Morris Kantor and Raphael Soyer.  As a young person she associated with Matta, Duchamp and Ernst, artist friends of her parents.

She had chronic bouts of mental illness, and, suffering a failed love affair with a woman and the decline in acceptance of her work, she committed suicide in Switzerland.  She is remembered as an important artist of the 1940s, an abstractionist in a time of Surrealism and Abstraction.
