DEAR ARTHUR:

I JUST FOUND YOU GORGEOUS BOOK AT THE FRONT DOOR AS I WENT TO PUT THE BILLS IN THE MAILBOX FOR TOMORROW.THE CATALOGUE RAISONNE IS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. IT IS BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY. THE ILLUSTRATIONS SEEM TRUE TO THE COLORS, THE INFORMATION IS EXTENSIVE AND CLEARLY LAID OUT, I AM THRILLED TO HAVE A CENTRAL ROLE IN THE BOOK. IT WAS OUR PROJECT AND I FEEL SO MODEST IN MY ROLE WHEN I LOOK AT THE RICHNESS AND VARIETY OF YOUR WORK OVER THE YEARS.  I AM SO GLAD THAT WHAT WE STARTED SO LONG AGO HAS TURNED INTO SUCH A WONDERFUL PRODUCTION HONORING YOUR VISION, IDEAS AND EXPRESSIVE CAPABILITIES. I WISH I WAS NEAR TO SHARE A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE IN RECOGNITION OF A LIFE WELL LIVED. I WILL TRY AND CALL YOU TOMORROW.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

Dear Arturo,

Thank you so much for your video you sent me ! I enjoy it , and I shall see it again... It is important to understand the way an artist uses for making his works, I have been very excited by seeing you discussing, explaining, looking at your finished painting, so important by the size, by its own meaning, by its/your energy, your dynamism... You are a true example for me, my dear Arthur ! Here every thing is going on: rain, wind, some sun from time to time, museums, galleries, family (sons and grand-son: a little devil !), walking, a short trip in Germany for visiting a gallery, some texts to write... the daily ans (almost) quiet life of a retired man... 

Many, many warm greetings from my heart for you, my dear Arthur, take care of yourself, be happy !

I was very glad and moved to receive that wonderful Catalog Raisonne of the works of my old chap Arturo. What monument! Important and very welcome. God bless you and him! 

I was obliged to pay 25 euros by the French customer, but I should have expected to pay more when I saw that marvelous book.

Thank you many times.

Thank you, thank you so much for the so exciting "Catalogue of Graphics by Arthur Secunda" I relieved last Saturday… Wonderful surprise, wonderful works, where I can find the feelings and the soul of an excellent artist, and of a very close friend: we met us in 1980 … more than thirty years ago… Unhappily, now we don't have opportunities of meeting us anymore an it is a pity,: so many memories, so many impressions about art… But we go on exchanging emails, with opinions, photos… 

This book is fascinating me, by the works I have known for many years ( I organized an exhibition of the silk prints in Cholet in 1981, about the theme of luminous landscapes), and I remember his truly professional character, and his kindness… And i have been enthusiastic by the quietness, the strength the perfection of his works, by the new ways he wanted to discover, his graphic experiences, and something too, like an anguish hidden in the deep of his heart, and of his art.

My warmest congratulations for  the opening of this museum devoted to this close and true friend, to this exciting artist. I have been a director of museums 30 years long and I guess the problems , the difficult situations, the unpleasant obstacles such a project can suffer… I do wish you a wonderful and entire success ! My own field was the geometric abstraction, nevertheless I enjoy the woks by Arthur very, very much. Why, when, how does it happen? This is a deep mystery !

Thank you again for this wonderful book!
