"Lost Art Found," the recovered works by Paul Swan

Listen to this story
Todd Moe talks with the curators of a new exhibit at SUNY-Potsdam that includes some of the paintings of artist, actor, dancer, poet and musician Paul Swan. The New York Times called him "America's Leonardo DaVinci," but many of his works disappeared for decades. After years of research, Colton residents Janis and Richard Londraville have uncovered some of the art and life of Paul Swan. With access to Swan's personal papers, letters and an unpublished memoir, the Londraville's have documented the story of his complicated family life, bisexuality and personal eccentricities in the book, The Most Beautiful Man in the World: Paul Swan, from Wilde to Warhol.
