Leon Gaspard was born near Moscow, Russia, in 1882, to parents that encouraged his artistic talents, and his move to Paris to study at the Academie Julian. Gaspard was enthralled by the creative climate and the creativity that was around him. For several years he studied and showed his works at the Paris Salon. Following a two-year recovery from an airplane accident, Gaspard moved to New York in 1916, where would live and exhibit for only 2 years before settling in Taos, New Mexico. In Taos, Gaspard was fascinated by the indigenous culture, and set about learning and painting it. His vibrant style was rooted in Impressionism, and resisted many Moderist trends.
