Louis Catusco (1927-1995)



 A painter, an enigma, and a beloved member of the Taos Moderns, Louis Catusco (1927-1995) was free and sophisticated in his use of the decisive played against the happy accident. He continued to evolve with each successive canvas, provoking the eye and stimulating the intellect, completely ignoring the "flea market" approach of most galleries at the time. Catusco remained a genuine individual throughout his life.
