Vine, Peter. "Art and artists," pp. 164-173. In the author's Seychelles. 2nd edition. London: Immel, 1992. illus. (color). DT469.S4V78 1992 AFA. OCLC 27153352.

Seychellois visual artists are deeply inspired by "the fascinating interplay between luxuriant exotic vegetation and local inhabitants." Others take up themes of revolutionary struggle, multi-racialism, and political freedom. Art is encouraged by the government of the Seychelles and in particular by the director of culture, Leon Radegonde, himself a practicing artist. Fourteen works of art are illustrated in color.
