Peter Arno (neé Curtis Arnoux Peters Jr.) was born August 1, 1904 to a prominent New York family, and educated at the Hotchkiss School and Yale University. From 1925 until 1968 Arno was a frequent contributor to The New Yorker magazine. His cartoons often depicted a cross-section of New York society. In 1927 Arno married The New Yorker magazine columnist and fashion editor Lois Long. The couple’s only daughter, Patricia was born September 18, 1928. The marriage ended in 1930. Soon after, Arno married society debutante Mary Livingston Lansing, which also ended in divorce. With a successful career poking fun at society matrons, businessmen, chorus girls and playboys, the handsome, debonair artist became a celebrity himself, endorsing consumer products, judging beauty pageants and appearing as himself in the 1937 film, “Artists and Models.” Arno was often seen in the company of high society’s most beautiful women. In 1968, Peter Arno died after battling with lung cancer. He was 68.
