Artist Leon Gaspard's life resembled a rich and exotic tapestry, one woven with the shining threads of Czarist Russia, pre-war France, and the wild beauty of Taos, New Mexico. He and his wife, Evelyn, joined the artist's colony at Taos four short years after its inception as a refuge for creative people of all nationalities.
In Leon Gaspard, Frank Waters has affectionately chronicled the artist's life, one spent in feverish pursuit of a world vanishing before his eyes. Waters' tribute to this astonishing artist is a lyrical sonnet to adventure and bravery, courage and determination.
