Nice enough site.Is "Mona Lisa" Leonardo in drag? Save for discovery ofnew evidence/documentation, we may never know...Sorry, computer simulations are just too misleading.I can make my own facial features match Mona Lisa'sand produce a nice morph movie. Proves exactlynothing... Or maybe I'm Leonardo... In drag...Why is Mona smiling?- The polenta has been especially good that day... ;)D.X. "Incerta pro nullis habentur..."

Freud said her smile had awakened something in Leonardo that was long dormant and he continually had to give it new expression. Art historians say she was a real person and her smile lent to the etiquette of the time. I think both of these men were geniuses, I wish both could have seen what you did...and then debated.

I was so delighted to visit this website! Anything about Leonardo Interest me, but the Gioconda´s portrait ... Anyway, the thing is that I had another theory regarding her smile and I have even painted a canvas some thirty years ago on this subject. Behind the Gioconda´s face there is a death´s head, that´s all. And therefore has an attraction on everybody´s subconscious...

I am in my advanced placement European history class we are studying the Rennaisance. A part of the
Rennaiasance is art so my teacher is giving us an extra credit
assignment of judging an artwork. I chose the Mona Lisa. I found nice
bibliographical information in your website that I fully intend to
include in my report. So your website though it didn't help me complete
my ultimate objective for research, it did contribute to the report.

Campbell, OH USA - Friday, October 02, 1998 at 08:21:36 (EDT)
I love the theory! I think that the joke is on us. I have just read a book called "How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci" (a wonderful book by the way) and it talks about his great sense of humor. I am very eager to go to Victoria BC this weekend for the opening of the Da Vinci exhibit - the only one in Canada. He has always been my hero in history, it will be so exciting to see and experience it. I am impressed with this web site, as I'm sure he would have!
Kamloops, bc Canada - Thursday, October 01, 1998 at 14:24:34 (EDT)
I find the theory that Leonardo had painted his own face on the Mona Lisa a very acceptable one. I have watched various documentaries about Leonardo and it is very apparent that the man was definately a genius. He may have seen some humor in fooling any that saw his painting and that could explain the slight hint of a smirk, instead of a full blown smile. In the same respect, the closeness of a smirk could have been his wondering how long it would take for someone who was equal to his genius to finally figure out what he had done. I often wonder just what else he could accomplish if he were alive now with his having access to our present technology. Makes you wonder doesn't it? Your site is fabulous and I enjoyed it very much, and keep up the good work.

Your site is truly informative as well as fun! i do not know if I buy Leo being Mona Lisa - he could just look like his mom - and hazel eyes ARE a kind of blend of brown and green and gold(my husband has them)so depending upon what someone with hazel eyes was wearing, his or her eyes would look green or brown or golden.
USA - Wednesday, September 30, 1998 at 22:18:03 (EDT)
This page has alot of information on it and it was great. I was looking for some proof of how Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa and i think i found it.I do know that when he painted it he dressed up as a lady and stood in front of a mirror. But where is the proof of that.???

I have heard a rumor where Leonardo Da Vinci was able to write backwads with both hands at the same time. Writng Latin in one hand and Italian on the other. I think. But this is just a rumor. I have also heard him referred to as a rennissance man by some man, I forgot his name. I think this page really helped my insite on Leonard Da Vinci Even more. Thank You Kindly.

Nothing happened on the Mona Lisa to show me a flip-flop. It worked at home on the computer, but when I had a group of fourth graders at school and wanted to show them, we just looked at Leo's face. Why is that?

My grandfather,Ardonio Gherardini, explained to me that lisa's less than enthusiastic smile was the result of her dismay at being forced to wed Giovanni Giannini at the age of 15. The portrait,commissioned by Giannini prior to the wedding,was to preserve her youthful beauty.

P.B.G., FL USA - Sunday, September 20, 1998 at 20:31:23 (EDT)
The first time I ever even thought about Leonardo da Vinci or Mona Lisa was when I had watched the movie "Ever After" co-starring our very lovely Drew Barrymore. (August '98, that is) Until then I could care less. I started to ponder and ask myself was Mona Lisa really a person? What did da Vinci do to make her so famous? My boyfriend told me it was how he painted, the strokes, the texture, the paint itself, and what he painted on. I thought he just simply painted on canvass or something. I was wrong. I don't know how to look at art but the mystery of Mona Lisa captivates me. I have read Dr. Lillian Schwartz theory about Mona Lisa. I found it very interesting. Could Mona Lisa be a portrait of da Vinci? I also read Rina De Firenze theory. Maybe Mona Lisa was da Vinci's mom, Catrina. (I think her name was)I don't know how many more theories there are out there. These are just the ones I ran across. Which ever one you like to belive is upon you. I liked Dr. Lillian Schwartz better. It was more exicitng to me. I think the truth would be nice to know. Maybe when I get to heaven I'll ask da Vinci himself. But leaving it as a mystery is even better. In that there is the art itself. Before I leave I have some a question I want to ask. If any could help by answering them, please e-mail me. What did Leonardo da Vinci do to make the painting so famous? If any more questions arise again. I'll be sure to be back. Thanks.

A very interesting theory. It is possible, considering he was a genius so he knew exactly what he was doing. Trying new ideas was obviously not new to him. Regards from Canada.

Monty suggests that Mona Lisa is smiling because she just had a treat.
Washington, DC, USA - Thursday, September 17, 1998 at 01:23:02 (EDT)
Artists know their own faces very well. They see themselves in mirrors, most have done many self portaraits, to save money since you don't have to pay for the model. Because so many artists have drawn & painted themselves, they can make other subjects look like themselves on purpose or unconsciously. I don't think that Leonardo would be trying to see himself as a young women. Especially if you think about the time he was living in. I found you via a San Bernardino
Sun newspaper article. They did a nice piece on your Leonardo site.
Hope you enjoy all of the wonders of Leonardo's genius.
Redlands, CA USA - Wednesday, September 16, 1998 at 13:03:58 (EDT)

Chester, Va USA - Wednesday, September 16, 1998 at 10:55:59 (EDT)
You have done a great job with this project. You chose an interesting subject for many. I think Leonardo would have left precise notes if he had used himself as the model. But your morph could convince me differently. Will share with my Manchester Art Association friends. Thank you!

I think she is smiling because she was having her picture painted.Leonardo wanted to paint her picture because she was full of love and cheerfulness.She led a long and beautiful life full of spunk and admireation.

i think mona lisa was smiling because leonardo divinci was tickling her while he was painting the picture
bristow, ok USA - Tuesday, September 15, 1998 at 15:56:08 (EDT)
I think mona lisa is smiling because she was a very sweet person.She had a
very fun life.The main reason I think why is because the man who painted her,wonted
her to be smiling in his painting.

I think that Mona Lisa is Leonardo Divinci. The reasonthat he is smiling is becuase he thinks he has fooled everbody with his famous portrait.

Bristow, OK USA - Tuesday, September 15, 1998 at 15:50:49 (EDT)
I feel that mona is smiling beacause it's a casual look for a picture.
Brisow, ok USA - Tuesday, September 15, 1998 at 15:48:43 (EDT)
I think that Leonardo DiVinci did paint a picture ofhimself and then turned it into Mona Lisa since his features match his. I think that's pretty neat.

I think that Leonardo did paint Mona Lisa to looK like him.. her facial features kinda match his.. that's pretty neaT! and pretty bizzare~! Whoever recognized this is pretty sMarT!

She is smiling because the Mona Lisa is actually Leonardo DaVinci.
Bristow, Ok USA - Tuesday, September 15, 1998 at 15:45:53 (EDT)
leonardo posed as mona lisa so that is why she is smiling.

I think that this scientist is trying to make too much out of this whole thing. It's not really some big mystery. It's just a picture of a chick who feels like smiling or something.He thought she was pretty so he painted her. It's that simple. People think too much.

Mona Lisa is smiling because she is happy. Leonardo posed for himself, so he is Mona Lisa.

Upon reveiwing your web pages and links, I was immpressed with the integrity of the art work that went into the designs. With young minds as the artisians, it would seem you have a limitless media for creativity. The backgrounds are pleasing to my eyes, yet still have an intricacy that belies the age of the designers. I wish you well with your program and many happy hours of surfing. -KOH (This brings to mind a quotation given by Einstein....Immagination is more important than knowledge)

I agree with Dr. Lillian in the fact that Leonardo Divinci did paint himself in the Mona Lisa

Enjoyed the site, especially the LDV-Mona morph. I saw a show on PBS once about this and I believe it is a self portrait.

I had heard that the Mona Lisa is also called La Giocanda, the the subject is the wife of a Florentine nobleman who was mourning the death of her child. If this is the case, it seems that da Vinci or one of his assistants would have kept a record of the model or the sitting. Does anyone have more information on this? Thanks.

There should be more information of Leonardo Da Vinchi himself. That would make this site more educational and more fun.

Congratulations to he students of this JFK High School Web Site for winning the contest and for sharing with the wide world your enthusiastic interest in the life and times of Leonardo da Vinci. My answer to your quest: "Why is the Mona Lisa smiling" is that her smile is now a happier smile as in my book Mystery of the Mona Lisa, the truth about her portrait is finally out!
