All these images were soooo interesting.
1. as ways to see inside the famed artists' lives
2. how the characters related to each other: love, art, life
3. and how the artists transferred all this stuff into their art.

Of course, so much of this is implied by the images. Whether the gossip is true or not, that will always be a secret. HA!
