This site is a micro view of the life's work of
1894 to 1995
Welcome to The Leonard Borman Art Gallery
( Your Host Robert Farris ) I have always had a great
interest in art
& over the years I have studied many different mediums, drawing, painting
printmaking, sculpture & about 1998 started computer animation.
After moving to the Southern California Desert in the mid
1960's I met an extraordinary artist , Leonard Borman.
Any painting with this
or description indicates
it's in my private collection.
I have three sketchbooks
Leonard used over a 40 to 50 yrs. period. Drawings posted on this site from
them will have this (
by pictures from
These books were what
he call dummy books, that he picked up from junk stores. They are 9"x6"x1&1/2"
hard cover with titles on the front & about 12 printed pages & pictures. The
remaining pages are empty and very nice for drawings & small watercolors. (
There are two Titled SAFARI printed 1927 & one, The American Adventure
l The Civil War 1927 ) He said they were samples sent in advance of a full
publication for the purpose of obtaining orders. Notes
here Leonard is holding one in his left
hand. Almost all other pictures on this web site are from hundreds of photo
prints, color slides, drawings, original paintings & other material he
kept, mainly for reference to aid in further advancement of his art.
Check back occasionally I
will be adding more of the hundreds of
paintings, drawings, original prints, photos & carvings left to me by LB.
If you have art created by Leonard Borman & want to share it
email a good photo to me I will add it to this site.
