Mona Lisa And the Renaissance

Leonardo da Vinci was an artist during the time period known as the

Renaissance. Renaissance is the French word for rebirth. This was a period of great change in Art as well as

science, philosophy, and other forms of art such as music, dance, architecture, and literature. The Renaissance

occurred roughly between the 14th and 17th century throughout Europe.

The Mona Lisa was painted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1503-1506.

It is one of the most famous, and most recognized, paintings in the world.

Why is this painting so

popular? 'Mona Lisa or GIOCONDA

Da Vinci's most well-known painting, and arguably the most famous painting in the world, the "Mona Lisa," was a privately

commissioned work and was completed sometime between 1505 and 1507. It is the inherent spirituality of the human creature

that Leonardo was able to transfer to the picture that raises the human figure to some kind of majesty.

Based on accounts from an early biographer, the "Mona Lisa" is a picture of Lisa Gioconda, the

real-life wife of a merchant, but that's far from certain. For da Vinci, the "Mona Lisa" was forever a work in progress, as it was his attempt

at perfection. The painting was never delivered to its commissioner; da Vinci kept it with him until the end of his life. Today, the "Mona Lisa"

hangs in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France, secured behind bulletproof glass, and is regarded as a priceless national treasure.

Many well-known artists have copied the

Mona Lisa, or have incorporated it into their own artwork.

Did you develop an individual approach of expression in the portrait? Did you use distortion or different

techniques to create a meaning? Did you evaluate your art work?
