I don't know if this is true or not, but...

Van Gogh had a bad habit of licking his brushes as he was painting for texture and whatever else. During his time, the lead in the paint was enough to drive someone crazy or killl them. Hence, poor Vincent went mad.

It sounds plausible Sky. I'll see if I can find out anything more.

Hey Cath-

Also in one of my classes in college, we did a study that men actually see bluish hues more as they age than women do. We did a slight study of Monet's paintings with regards to the bluish tint becoming more prominent as he aged.

I've heard that too Sky. I studied color as part of my interior design course and they also said that women's physiological makeup is very different to men and means that they see colors very differently. Men are also much more likely to be color blind than women because of it.
