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! About the Author Elizabeth Lunday is a journalist specializing in architecture and art. She writes the “Masterpieces” column for mental_floss magazine and lives in Fort Worth, Texas.
