Born in Cortez, Colorado, Francis Livingston is in the top ranks of American illustrators. Livingston’s paintings of western landscapes and pueblo architecture capture the colors and light effects that are unique to the West. His deep understanding of history, the land and its people allow him to create imagery reminiscent of the Taos Founders, and other great western artists.
