about these sketches

Lives in the Arts sketches are not in-depth biographies. A sketch is intended to give you a quick, easy-to-absorb rundown on the subject, one that can help explain or elaborate other information posted at this web site. Electricka is not responsible for a sketch's accuracy or completeness.

If you seek an in-depth study or more detail than you find in a biographical sketch, Electricka suggests that you:

  • Consult a traditional reference such as a biography in book form, an encyclopedia, a book of reproductions.

  • Visit a web site containing a section that treats the personality, or one entirely devoted to the personality. Many arts personalities have entire web sites devoted to them.

  • Check for additional biographical sources at the page called Electricka's Resource Shelf.
