Margaret Lefranc's artworks demonstrate her great sensitivity to the environment and deep understanding of artistic traditions, trends, and movements. She was committed to experimenting and taking risks.

Margaret Lefranc’s exposure to modern art in New York, Berlin, and Paris fortified her for a unique position in the Santa Fe art colony. Never a self-promoter, Lefranc’s inclusion in a series of exhibitions in the early 1990s reintroduced her work to the public eye. Consequently, her 1996 Governor’s Award for Excellence and Achievement in the Arts from state of New Mexico is a testament to her importance to the Santa Fe art scene.

The book represents a wonderful journey into the creative mind of a terrific artist who has been overlooked for too long. The publication does a superb job of presenting the remarkable range of her talent and the brilliance of her ideas. It's a book that must be examined by anyone interested in the art of America.
