Jean-Baptiste Sécheret is a graduate from
the Beaux-Arts of Paris (1981). He spent two years in residency at the Casa
Vélasquez in Madrid (1984-1986) and has been a member of the Société des
peintres-graveurs français since 1999. His artworks, which were awarded several
prizes, are featured in many private and public collections in France,
Switzerland, the United States, and China.
More than twenty publications have been
dedicated to his work, including, among others, texts by Jacques Thuillier,
Pierre Bergounioux, James Lord, Michel Waldberg, Patrick Mauriès, Alain
Madeleine-Perdrillat, and Jean-Louis Augé.
Since his first exhibitions at Galerie
Albert Loeb (1984), Galerie Berggruen (1989), and later on Galerie Jacques
Elbaz (2000), his artworks are regularly displayed in France and abroad in many
solo and collective shows, both in galleries and museums.
