Wadsworth Atheneum

SECRET LIVES OF GREAT ARTISTS

With outrageous anecdotes about everyone from Leonardo to Caravaggio to Edward Hopper, this fun book recounts the seamy, steamy, and gritty history behind the great masters of international art.  

You’ll learn that Michelangelo’s body odor was so bad his assistants couldn’t stand working for him, that Vincent van Gogh sometimes ate paint directly from the tube, and Georgia O’Keeffe loved to paint in the nude. This is one art history lesson you’ll never forget.
