What a great project you all have created!
Your site is filled with great information and really serves as a teaching tool - I even learned something!
I am working on my Ph.D. in Educational Technology at Purdue University.
Projects like yours really provide us with great examples to share with our students.
Thanks for the learning experience!

Great Job! It's great to see one of the biggest benefits that the Internet provides at work!
It also shows that limited resources cannot impede
people with the desire to excel. What a great idea, project and executions
Keep it up!

Thank you so much for inviting me to visit this website. I always thought Mona Lisa had an inside joke which explained her slight smile. If your theory is correct it may be true. Congratulations on excellent teamwork. My website undergoes change at sporatic times. I am constantly learning HTML codes and making new friends on the internet all over the world. Come visit my website when you can. The site is becoming a place where I tell about our sailboat and sailing the world. The boat requires a bit more preparation. Keep up the great work everyone!

I found the site "Why is the Mona Lisa Smiling" impressive ... impressive enough to include in one of my "Classroom Integration" sessions for pre-service teachers. It takes an enormous amount of time and effort to prepare pre-service teachers for their role as 21st century educator. As we continue to use and model the use of technology, it is most helpful to find sites which address the issue of learning. One simple questions, strategically asked, lends itself to a teachable moment. Our students are asking for examples of how they might use technology to enhance their students' learning experiences when they actually get to the classroom. Understanding that many of them will not graduate and teach until the year 2000 or later, they need on-going examples and opportunities to see what can be done, where it can be done, why it can be done, and how they can contribute to it happening -- successfully. The question was so simple, the possibilities were many, the inquisitiveness to explore was priceless. Hopefully, all 65 of our pre-service teachers will sign your guest book shortly to echo my feelings ... WELL DONE!

A GREAT THEORY! But does it explain the smiling? He could have painted himself/Mona
thoughtful, sad, angry, tired, pensive,...... What about this hypothesis: He was
a great technician, as we know. So I think he was able to beam himself forward
in time. To the year 1997. Saw a PC, entered the Web and saw this Website. And
then he couldn't but smile. Right? I enjoyed your site very much. Gerd THE

Don¹t know when the Mona Lisa was first hung in the Louvre, but on August 21, 1911 it was stolen by Vincenzo Perugia, an Italian painter. Perugia wanted to compensate for the plunder of Napoléon and his troops, and thought he would be considered a national hero if he returned this masterpiece to Italy. He hid the painting in his Paris bedroom until the furor of the theft died down, then in December 1913, took the painting to Florence, Italy. Instead of being honored for a great deed, he was placed in jail and the Mona Lisa was re-hung in the Louvre just a few days later, on January 4, 1914.

I feel proud to have been the first in the Philippines to visit your website. The features on Da Vinci especially regarding Mona Lisa really struck me. I am really interested in the arts and in great people. I also want to learn more about the great artists as my son who is 13 years old is himself an artist.
I wish to thank Mr. Steve Feld for acknowledging my message. More power to you!

Many students from JFK and all over the world will truly learn from this experience and be inspired to create similar projects. As a multicultural advocate, I hope that this project will continue and include people from diverse background. In this manner, more people shall be enlightened, inspired and encouraged to be more accepting in the celebration of the different groups that we belong to. Keep up the good work! A work like this truly deserves compliments.

I am starting the book, "Invitation to Italy," and have the following question:
We have visited SANTA MARIA DELLE GRAZIE three times, but neglected to get information about the picture opposite "The Last Supper." Any information about the subject, the artist, the size of the picture, when it was painted, etc., would be appreciated.
The last time we were there, in 1989, The Last Supper was in the process of renovation, and still was in quite bad shape. We hope the renovation is going well. I would like an update on the status of that work.

What an exciting way to learn more about DaVinci and Mona Lisa! I wonder what Leonardo would say about the marvelous idea of sharing something so old and precious(Mona Lisa) via something so new and valuable(the Internet)! He would probably wonder why he didn't think of it! Thanks for the invitation, I plan to tell others about this site and look forward to returning. It is quite impressive! Jean Walls Blakley

You have collected an interesting bunch of ideas here. I personally do not believe that Leonardo painted himself as a woman although I've heard that he had homosexual tendancies. Besides, he supposedly was very grumpy. Great photo transformation. I will try to slow it down as someone said. Pleasure for the retina. Thanks

My next-door neighbor is really into the Mona Lisa right
now, but she didn't even know who Da Vinci was. She's 9,
so I guess she gets off of it. She wants to be a painter
and paint a portrait as good as Da Vinci's.

Your morphing picture is pretty cool, but it moves way to fast.
I found out by clicking on the scroll bar you can slow it down...
..I heard somewhere that he painted the mona lisa while he was travelling and could not of had the model follow him around.
This supports the idea that he could have been the only model.

As to weather DaVinci actually used himself as a model or not
is not entirely important because a work of art does not need
a reason for its creation.
Titusville, Fl USA - Wednesday, October 01, 1997 at 16:25:11 (EDT)
I remember reading a book called The Private Life of Mona Lisa when I was in high school. The author, whose name I don't remember, suggested that the reason that M.L. was smiling was that she was really a comtemporary of Leonardo and as she sat for the painting he recreated her to look like her youthful self. According to this line of thinking, Leonardo had been in love with M.L. when they were young, but he had been unable to marry her. This was his gift to her in old age. Just for your info. Great page by the way!

Swoyersville, PA USA - Wednesday, September 24, 1997 at 21:34:12 (EDT)
I do not know if you noticed this, but Leonardo left a hint as to who his portraits were in his painting. If you look at the braid on the neckline of her dress, The braid is the Da Vinci braid, which may be the hint from leonardo that everyone was looking for and never really found. I believe that is the hint that Leonardo left. Also the question for the Mona Lisa having no eyebrows and eyelashes may be answered too. Leonardo, as you all know, had an enormous amount of facial hair. His self portrait (The Mona Lisa) is a portrait of him with no facial hair, including his eyebrows and eyelashes. All in all I agree with the conclusion that the Mona Lisa is indeed a self portrait of Leonardo.

The merging of the two self portraits clearly shows that DaVinci was indeed painting a portrait of himself. Good Work!!!!
USA - Tuesday, September 23, 1997 at 21:44:22 (EDT)
We came to the conclusion that the Mona Lisa is a self portrait. Through the light of technology, we viewed the similarities between the two. It is truly amazing. Until our world cultures teacher told us about this theory, we would have never known about it. (Thanks Miss Tarantini) When scientists merged those two pictures together, it WAS a perfect match. The smile, the eyes, the cheeks, the nose, everything. It was just great!! So now we leave you with this thought....The Mona Lisa is an excellent piece of art that is such a mystery, you dont know where or what you will find next about this wonderful masterpiece.

that the ML has to be Da Vinci.
Bethesda, md USA - Tuesday, September 23, 1997 at 17:07:40 (EDT)
I think the Mona Lisa is really Leo dressing in drag. There is so much resemblence it's freaky. We are studying the Renaissance in History class and we used the internet to look at all the glorious paintings. My teacher also had us look at this page. It's pretty weird. We'll never know the truth though. Kewl page by the way!

The information about the Mona Lisa is very interesting. I never heard of that suggestion until now. It is amazing how technology can find out so many things and make everything fit into place! It's great.
PA USA - Monday, September 22, 1997 at 21:41:18 (EDT)
This was very freaky, but also interesting. I believe it may be a self portrait because of the facial features and other facts. I also believe it may be a portrait trying to figure what his mom looked like

We think that Leonardo DaVinci's "Mona Lisa" is a portrait of himself. The similarties are uncanny. We think that the background is dark and gloomy because that was the way Leo was feeling being a closet homosexual. We must say that Leo is a very clever artist in the way that he fooled the world into thinking that he painted a woman, but in actuality he painted himself in drag. Sneaky, very sneaky.

Drew thinks that the Mona Lisa is a portrait of DaVinci's mother. Marcy thinks that it is a self-portrait. The similarities are uncanny and it is very interesting.

We think that due to the facts presented, the "Mona Lisa" is in fact a self portrait of Leonardo DaVinci.

I think your analysis and speculation has merit and is very interesting. Since there appears to be a resemblence, perhaps it was another family member who posed? Food for thought.

That's really trippy how you change the pictures into one another, it hurts my eyes, and it scares ...me, but otherwise, i believe it is a female version of himself.
USA - Friday, September 19, 1997 at 01:13:07 (EDT)
I enjoyed visiting your Web Page tremendously. I concur with Lillian's viewpoint and suggest that the Mona Lisa's mysterious smile is Leonardo's little joke on all of us.

I don't believe that Leonardo painted himself because I don't think that he could have gotten the visual effects without a model. The chiaroscuro and the lost edges would be very difficult to reproduce if he were painting a self-portrait unless a mirror were placed across the room, and in the shade. Leonardo was an older man painting the image of a young woman, and he would have had to fabricate a new image of himself. Judging from Leonardo's love of naturalism, I would have a hard time believing that he would alter himself, or anything for that matter, just to prove a point.

Frankee was very impressed by the technology that Dr. Schartz used to prove her theory, but he wants to know if there is any other evidence besides the computer morphing to support her theory.

I think that Leornardo has been one of the most intelligent person the world ever known. Not only becuase of his painting but also because of his inventions!

USA - Friday, September 12, 1997 at 20:39:49 (EDT)
Personally i think that the smile is real coming from a real model. In fact i think that the model was a very sad person and she got her smile when Leonardo informed her that his work was finally coming to an end. However what you did seems interesting. Well done folks!

Why does Mona Lisa smile? I think that is a question only men care about. Any woman will tell you that the true mystery, the sound of one hand clapping, if you will is located behind the two of her shoulders, in the striated landscape.

The Mona Lisa being a self potrait of Da Vinci is a very plausible theory.

Dayton, wy USA - Monday, September 08, 1997 at 15:30:16 (EDT)
Tina thinks that Dr. Schartz's theory has some holes in it, such as the fact that we know quite a bit about Lisa La Gioconda, the name of the woman usually associated with the Mona Lisa. Antonio thinks that the mystery behind the smile may be that maybe Lisa and Leonardo had an affair -- of the heart or more... maybe. Monique feels like the mystery of the smile has been solved when she realized (before she saw this Web site) that Leonardo's face and Mona Lisa's look very similar. She thinks that Mona Lisa is smiling because Leonardo has pulled one over on us for 491 years!! Anne is simply fascinated that so many people spend so much time trying to solve a mystery that is much more beautiful simply contemplated. Frankee will write later.

Does it occur to anyone but me that Leonardo WAS either bi
or sexual (not just a new idea -most art historians
seem to agree on this)!
Also if you read his (only) novel there's some indication.

Leonardo is always more fun when enigmas are added into the mix.
The self-portrait theory for the smile looks as plausible as any I've seen, and the morph is intriguing.

I had a great time searching your new web pages. I have learned some new things and thank you for that. Pages are well organized. As my students are on holidays they can not look at your work before September. I think that pages will help many students to learn about Leonardo da Vinci's and his work, .. and everything related to his work.

You and the students did a lot of work and I am sure it will only get better. It is now time for me to start learning more about web page construction and computer graphics.Thanks again.
