Secret Lives of Great Artists

This is not your college art history 101 book—but something much, much better. Presented in graphic fiction-like format, readers absorb actual art history lessons (Artistic style: Baroque, Northern Renaissance, and such) alongside some entertaining gossip (fears, tempers, infidelities, personal hygiene issues, behavioral quirks, crimes committed and so on). This book delivers a light, humanizing touch to an historically heavy subject matter, and wittily ‘mortalizes’ the immortal Great Artists. Perfect for the undergrad and the art history major.
