Dr. Lerebours is the author of "Haiti et Ses Peintres de 1804 à 1980". He has a doctorate in Art History from the Sorbonne University in Paris. In a career that spanned decades, he had many responsibilities, including director and curator of the Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège St. Pierre and Head of the National School of the Arts (ENARTS).
