Why "Mona Lisa" is so famous?
Artist: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519),
The most dazzlingly poetic pictures ever created - Leonardo's three great portraits of women all have a secret wistfulness.
secret wistfulness quality is at its most enigmatic in the Mona
Lisa's (Leonardo Collection Set I, Code: LEO018) inward
its most appealing in the Lady
with an Ermine’s (Leonardo Collection Set I, Code LEO010) gentle
submissiveness,and at its
most confrontational in Ginevra
de' Benci's (Leonardo Collection Set I, Code: LEO004) self-absorption.
It has that haunting, almost unearthly beauty peculiar to Leonardo.
Mona Lisa (Louvre, Paris), also known as La
Gioconda, is a portrait of the wife of Francesco del
Giocondo, painted by Leonardo between 1503 and 1505.
Leonardo himself loved the portrait, so much so that he always carried it with him until eventually in France it was sold to François I, either by Leonardo or by Melzi.
From the beginning it was greatly admired, and it came to be considered the prototype of the Renaissance portrait.
It became even more famous in 1911, when it was stolen from the Salon Carré in the Louvre, being rediscovered in a hotel in Florence two years later.
On the perfect beauty of a woman', by the 16th-century writer Firenzuola, we learn that the slight opening of the lips at the corners of the mouth was considered in that period a sign of elegance. Thus Mona Lisa has that slight smile which enters into the gentle, delicate atmosphere pervading the whole painting.
To achieve this effect, Leonardo uses the sfumato technique, a gradual dissolving of the forms themselves, continuous interaction between light and shade and an uncertain sense of the time of day.
To look at it as if we were the first time ever to set eyes on it. Lisa looks alive. She really seems to look at me and to have a mind of her own. She seems to change before my eyes and to look a little different every time we come back to her. Sometimes she seems to mock at us, and then again we seem to catch something like sadness in her smile. This sounds mysterious but that is so often the effect of a great work of art.
brings Mona Lisa into your private life, gaze at her smile, tell her all
your secrets, she will be your best friend. She will response to you every
time you look at her.
