Some of the artist bios that we feature on our site come from the following books. We assume the authors will not mind as long as we give them credit. We do this by putting the book initials in parentheses after the bio on the artist page. One of the books from which we get the information is out of print "La Peinture Haitienne" (LPH) by Marie-Joseph Nadal-Gardere & Gerald Bloncourt.
