Gasperi exhibited his fine oil paintigns at the Salon des Artistes Français from 1886 to 1901 and also frequently at the Société Nationale des Beaux-artswithout interruption from 1901.

Gasperi was a member of the Société Scientifique, Historique et Archéologique of Corrèze and he was one of the founders of a Société des Amis de Collonge. In the summers he worked as a conservator Musée Ernest Rupin (Labenche) in the nearby town of Brive. In 1931, his paintings are documented as purchased by the state, in the cities of Brive, Tulle, Aurillac, Agen, Bergerac, Perigueux. Gasperi was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1931. He died in 1935.
