Le Peintre Hervé Lebreton et la Politique de la Femme
L’auteur immortalise Hervé Lebreton, non seulement pour sa contribution à

artistique du monde. Gérard Etienne explore l’inspiration et la rendition
Lebreton à travers une incursion dans la mythologie Afro-Egyptienne

la philosophie, de la psychanalyse et de la sémiologie pour analyser l’
ensemble de l’oeuvre de Lebreton.
