The Madman's Gallery: The Strangest Paintings, Sculptures and Other Curiosities from the History of Art

by Edward Brooke-Hitching Author

A strange and wondrous art book unlike any other art book, full of the weirdest art in history. From a British explorer riding crocodiles to dog-headed holy men and human chess boards to Leonardo's apprentice who decided to paint his own version of the Mona Lisa but with a nude subject, this eccentric carnival of paintings will delight you, disturb you, and remind you that humans and artists have always been glorious, unpredictable weirdos.
