Hi Kathy,

I found a great little resource in a museum in Washington, DC, I believe-
but you could probably find it elsewhere. It is entitled,
"Accents on Artists" by Barbara and Peter Toohil. It was published by "Art
'N Facts Inc."
It gives pronunciations and short facts about over 800 artists. I find it
