Leon Gaspard

Army pilot, international spy and painter, Leon Gaspard (1882-1964) has recently caught my eye. I love his use of color, especially the gorgeous pinks and blues in this painting on silk.  Based on this image, you wouldn’t think Russian-born Gaspard spend the majority of his life in Taos, New Mexico, but his larger body of work feature scenes of Native American life. Check out his work, particularly in real life if you can. The reproduction doesn't even come close to doing it justice.
