Book 1
Le Peintre Hervé Lebreton et la Politique de la Femme
Gérard Etienne
L’auteur immortalise Hervé Lebreton, non seulement pour sa contribution à l’
art haitien,  à l’art antillais  mais ausi pour son impact sur la scéne
artistique du monde. Gérard Etienne explore l’inspiration et la rendition de
Lebreton à travers une incursion  dans la mythologie Afro-Egyptienne
pré-coloniale. L’auteur a eu recours aux éléments de l’anthropologie, de l’histoire, de
la philosophie, de la psychanalyse et de la sémiologie pour  analyser l’
ensemble de l’oeuvre de Lebreton.
