Documenting Artist's Biographies and Signatures


Village Antiques strives to publish as much information as possible about the artists on our pages.


We are always interested in hearing from you if you are a family member of the artist, or have additional information that we can include in our short on-line biographies.


We have begun lists of artists of several nationalities, focusing first on artists whose biographies are not widely avaialbe on the internet.


If you do not find the information you are looking for here, we recommend the following on-line sources.
