     Won his first artistic competitiion in Parris at age 10. Came to New York shortly after, Jacques Zuccaire first studied art in New York City as a teenager at Cooper Union (where they had an art program for immigrants) and again later at the Art Students League, and with famous still-life artist Robert Brackman (1898-1980) and Robert Philipp (1895-1981).
     He secured a position with the advertising firm of Lennen & Mitchell. By 1942 and in 1945 was promoted to vice-president and executive art director.  He left in 1947 to assume the post of vice-president in charge of art and production at Robert W. Orr & Associates.

    His greatest contribution was to the Lionel Corporation, where he worked from 1945 through 1964 and became a vice-president and served as the Advertising Manager for Lionel Trains from 1954 – 1964. During this period he also operated his own advertising firm in New York City.
    Following his retirement, Zuccaire threw himself into his own artwork – taking more classes and creating still-life, figurative, and landscape paintings in great numbers. Many of these works were exhibited at the Art Students League on a regular basis (where he was honored with a Life Membership), as well as at other locations.

  A small still life by him sold at auctiion for $2700 + buyers. Similar paintings by him sold for $3000 at a retrospective of his work at Arthur T. Kalaher Gine Arts in Southampton in June 2012.
