Biography from Adam Tamsky Fine Art:
Jerome Seckler (1915–1987) was born in Manhattan and grew up in Brooklyn. He studied at the Manhattan School of Music, and then the Art Students League, where he was mentored by painters Jo Goodman and Joe Solman. He was active in progressive politics and union organizing.

In 1939 he married Dorothy Gees, a young artist and art historian who became a well-known critic working at MoMA from 1945–50, and who served as Associate Editor of Art News from 1950–55 and Contributing Editor to Art in America.

Seckler went to war in 1942 and saw combat in France and Germany. Fluent in French, he was stationed in Paris shortly after liberation, and interviewed Picasso, Matisse, Roualt and other French artists who identified with the political left, writing articles for French and American publications and lecturing at MoMA in 1946. He remained in Paris after the war working for the French radio network RDF, before returning to New York where he continued his painting studies.

For many years he studied with Hans Hofmann, sharing space and instruction with Lee Krasner among others.Jerome worked for several large publishing companies including Children’s Press, American Book Company, and Holt, Rhinehart and Winston. Seckler continued to paint up to his death in 1987. Resisting suggestions to show his work during his lifetime, most of his prodigious output has descended in the family.
