Biography  
Gunther Gerzso


Gunther Gerzso - A New Vision

Gunther Gerzso was born on June 17, 1915 in Mexico City.  Gerzso's Hungarian-born father, Oscar, had migrated to Mexico in the early 1890s along with his wife who was a singer and pianist.  In 1927, Gunther Gerzso was sent to Switzerland to live with his Uncle, an art collector, dealer, and art historian.  This would be the only formal artistic education that he would receive.

"He had this house in [Lugano] Switzerland...I lived with them and I was surrounded by masterpieces. I wasn't interested but they drilled into me how to look at paintings and what a painting is, and so forth... I suppose during these five or six years that I was there I had to learn something."
