CHOUINARD - An Art Vision Betrayed by Robert Perine
In 1978, Bob Perine began the exhaustive undertaking to write a definitive book on Chouinard. Spending the next 7 years and taking time off of his own artmaking, his book, \”Chouinard- An Art Vision Betrayed\” was released in 1985. His book does an excellent job chronicling the history of Nelbert Chouinard and her school- covering most of the important aspects of Chouinard history.
