Top Ten Lefty Artists

 In Albrecht Durer, Art Puzzles & Trivia, Artists & Special Collections, Leroy Neiman, Rembrandt van Rijn, Thomas Kinkade

AUGUST 13 is International Lefthanders Day! The holiday was first observed on this day in 1976 as an effort to promote awareness of the inconveniences facing left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world. It is often speculated that lefties are right-brain dominant – the side of the brain linked to non-verbal thinking, artistic ability and creative skills.
