  • Secret Lives Of Great Artists


In the tradition of our best-selling Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents, here are outrageous and uncensored profiles of the world's greatest artists, complete with hundreds of little-known, politically incorrect, and downright bizarre facts. Consider:
  • Michelangelo had such repellent body odor that his assistants couldn't stand working for him.
  • Pablo Picasso did jail time for ripping off several statues from the Louvre.
  • Gabriel Dante Rossetti's favorite pet was a wombat that slept on his dining room table.
  • Vincent van Gogh sometimes ate paint directly from the tube.
  • Georgia O'Keeffe liked to paint in the nude.
  • Salvador DalÌ concocted a perfume from dung to attract the attention of his future wife.
  • With outrageous anecdotes about everyone from Leonardo (accused sodomist) to Caravaggio (convicted murderer) to Edward Hopper (alleged wife beater), Secret Lives of Great Artists is an art history lesson you'll never forget!
