For forty years Tony Curtis has enjoyed a successful second career as a fine artist. Mr. Curtis has always enjoyed working with painting, sketching and other mediums. However, his acting career took center stage. Now, Mr. Curtis finds himself more interested in working with visual arts. His acclaimed art works appear in galleries around the world including London, Paris and New York. One of his paintings has been placed in the world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, New York.
