I should start out by saying that I have never studied art and know very little about it. I don't know what makes a good painting great, or a great painting a masterpiece, but I do know what makes one famous. That would be any painting that even a guy like me would recognize. This list is not about colors, depth of field, symbolism, interpretation or why the artist chose to paint on beaverboard over canvas. This list looks at the personal lives of the people that have posed as subjects or models in 10 well known paintings – a subject that I feel is never discussed enough. Please comment if anyone feels the information I have gathered is not entirely accurate, or if you have any other interesting facts on these subjects and models.
