Uncover the unconventional tales of the artists' lives, including Holbein's matchmaking portraits for Henry VIII, Caravaggio's thuggish reactions to a badly-cooked artichoke, and the many romantic affairs of Picasso. Lavishly illustrated biographies for every artist reveal these visionaries at work in their studios, as well as the unique techniques, artworks, and personalities that made them into legends.
