Mona Lisa Painting – Amazingly Interesting Facts

  • “Mona Lisa” is not her name. The subject of the painting is Lisa Gherardini, a 24-year-old woman, whose rich husband – and presumably adoring – was commissioned by Francesco Del Giocondo. This explains the less common title of this painting, La Gioconda. The name Mona Lisa (or Monna Lisa, as Italians prefer) roughly translates to “My Lady Lisa”. Others think it’s a self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci himself.
  • “Mona Lisa often made strange things to men,” wrote R. A. Scotti in Vanished Smile, “The Louvre’s collection had more than a million works, and it alone received its own mail.” The painting has its own mailbox at the Louvre because of all the love letters that its subject receives. Men are dead to love him. In 1852, an artist by the name of Luc Maspero threw himself from the fourth floor of a Parisian hotel, leaving a suicide note saying: “For years, I struggled desperately with his smile, I prefer to die.” Then, in 1910, a loving fan came in front of her only to shoot himself in the head when he looked at her. Napoleon had a crush on her. It is said that her fascination with painting inspired her affection for a pretty Italian girl named Teresa Guadagni, who is actually a descendant of Lisa Gherardini.
  • Her eyebrows are a subject of debate. Some argue that the subject’s lack of eyebrows is representative of the high-class fashion of the time. Others insist that her AWOL eyebrows are proof that Mona Lisa is an unfinished masterpiece. But in 2007, ultra-detailed numerical analyzes of the painting revealed that da Vinci had painted thicker eyebrows and lashes. Both had simply disappeared over time or had been victims of years of restoration work.
  • In 1911, the Mona Lisa disappeared from the Louvre in Paris. Pablo Picasso was one of the suspects of theft. He was interrogated and imprisoned, but subsequently proved innocent.
  • Despite her smile, her expression is generally neutral, but debates about the emotions that underlie her suggest she is happy (83% of people think), disgusted (9% think), fearful (6% think) or angry (2% think). His smile does not change, but your mood changes. She has long smiled or fascinated artists and historians. But in 2000, Dr. Margaret Livingstone, a neuroscientist at Harvard, applied a scientific method to the reason why Mona Lisa’s smile seems to have changed. It all depends on your goal and the response of your brain. Brilliance of Vinci.
  • Leonardo has never signed, dated or given a name to this painting.
  • Scientists think they may have discovered the bones of the woman who posed for the painting, buried under an altar in the convent of St. Ursula in Italy.
  • A professor of Sicilian anatomy suggested that the woman who posed for the Mona Lisa would have suffered xanthelasma, cholesterol build-up under her skin and a tumor in her right hand. Because Leonardo was also a scientist, it was conceivable that he would have been interested in a careful treatment of all visible physical ailments.
  • The middle axis of the image passes through the middle of the forehead, nose, chest and cross of Mona Lisa’s hands. So perfect. Leonardo blurred the corners of Mona Lisa’s eyes and mouth with a technique called “sfumato” (in Italian, “sfumare” means “shading”, “disappearing” or “disappearing”) to give it a mysterious expression.
  • The Mona Lisa is the most parodied work of art in the world.
  • In 2010, art historians magnified high-resolution images and discovered tiny letters and numbers painted inside Mona Lisa’s students. The letters “LV” (possibly the initials of Leonardo) appear to the pupil of the right eye and the letters “CE” or “CB” to the left eye. Marks resembling the number “72” (or possibly the letter “L” and the number “2”) also appear in the arch of the bridge in the background. Some say that these images were formed randomly as a result of the many small cracks in the varnish of the painting.
