I think that the lisa Mona was really Leonardo's face made into a womans face, in your graphics it seems like it could be a resonable explanation, or maybe it Mona Lisa wasn't her real name and she was hiding out with Da Vinci and she changed her name and they fell deeply in love and she died and know one ever heard from her again. Thank you bye

I think Leonardo was clever enough to do such things, but I realy believe it was Mona Lisa del Giocondo who posed for Leonardo. That declares why he kept the painting with him so long 'till he sold it to Francois 1. I think he was in love with her.

Place a card over half of her face and then over the otherhalf, and compare the difference of the smile... the twosides of her face are inconsistant with a normal humans ability. Smiling and smirking with the same face. What doyou think? don

I have reinvented the Mona Lisa in my 36x48 oil intitled"Joys of Motherhood",
to be viewed on my URL: (link disabled). The smile source has been coveted through
the centuries because it is an incredibly warm smile, even of complicity tosome
mischievous deed. I agree that Leonardo used his ownlineaments to paint her face.
His genius probably knew thatpeople would have wondered for ages.

WOW What a wonderful site. I am 13 years old and I am doing a project on Leonardo Da vinci and this site helped me greatly on the creative writing section of my report. The Mona Lisa is such a beautiful painting, and I think it is so famous because of it's mystery and wonder. People like paintings that make you think, and the Mona Lisa is one of them. In the Art world, there are to different types of paintings. One, the ones that make you think and two, the ones that amuse you. Her eyes seem to follow you where ever you may go. The Mona Lisa is an amazing painting.
Laguna Beach, ca USA - Saturday, May 15, 1999 at 22:41:42 (EDT)
THIS IS A NICE PAGE AND MOST PEOPLE BELIVE THE SAME AS YOU DO BUT I THINK THAT HE PAINTED A PERSON AND NOT HIMSELF MOSTLY BECAUSE IN HIS TIME PEOPLE DID NOT DO THAT KIND OF PAINTINGS AND THERE AS PLENTY OF PEOPLE THAT THE MONA LISA COULD BE..... (E~MAIL ME FOR MORE DETAILS!)

I think the theory of self portrait is incredible. That never occured to me, I have to admit I agree with it. I had the pleasure of seeing his works at the Seattle Art Museum. I was very displease a reproduction of the Mona Lisa was shown with a cigar in her mouth. Is that what is considered freedom of artistic liscense. I was offended by it. Thank you for the opportunity to visit your site and learn more of this great master.

Does anybody know why in the picture, lik ein the center there is a black line and from under that the picture is darker? If anybody has any information on that please email me.
My Social Studies teacher was talking to us about the Mona Lisa
painting and I recognized the black line. So she, my teacher, said if we can
find any information on the painting of Mona Lisa then we would get extra
points. But it was funny because the hole class period we was talking about
the picture and how it looked like a man at some points. Because if you look
at the neck really closely you can see that it the chest looks like it starts
early and then comes in and then comes out.
And there is like no cleavage and the hands doesn't look like they would
belong to that body because they are to chubby. And also if you cover up the
hole face except for the eyes it sort of looks like man's eyes. So I
strongly think that he just drew that picture of himself.

I think the conclusion is a bit far fetched!!Come on just cos the guy doesn't include the date old Mona comes in to be painted and there is a small likeness, doesn't mean he's painted himself.

I was just reading an artical in the Smithsonion about the Mona Lisa and they refered to your theory. I really was just looking on the net for a picture of the Mona Lisa because the Smithsonian failed print a good one in there artical. I did a search on Mona Lisa and came up with your sight. Your theory is very interesting. It would be more interesting to impose his self portrait over other portraits he did. The same size paintings may show more structural similarities. I would also like to see how the jaw line compares. Too bad the beard is in the way.

I am glad you usedthe material from "How to think like Leonardo," by Michael Gelb.I found that interesting too. The statue must be 50-60 feethigh and 15 feet long. It reminds me of the Trojan Horse.Thanks,Rich Pero

WOW! What a beautiful site!! It truly is visually enticing..I love the colors..they are very appropriate for the "antique" manner at hand. I very much enjoyed the music and postcard links.. now I know Leonardo was a composer too! I tried to find the "morphing" link that I read about, but could not...The page on Dr. Schwartz was enlightening and made much sense given the proportions of the faces...I would now be interested to explore more of her art critiques. The Leonardo links were excellent and informative and would make ordinary research on a topic perhaps not interesting to many students much more alive & colorful. The only thing I had a problem with was returning home after all the links..I was sometimes lead too far away and would have to sign on all over again..my fault perhaps?? In any case, this would definitely be a creative and wonderfully educational lesson in art history, Leonardo DaVinci and the Renaissance. The interactive and multi-media ideas and activities make it all so interesting..Great Job!

Hi, JFK H.S. -- This is Richard Jordan, a member of the Board of Governors of the Naitonal Arts Club on Gramercy Park in Manhattan. Really interesting project on the Miho Museum. First, let me say that it was not clear where on the planet JFK H.S. is -- I figured out the Bronx from various clues. But, more importantly, at the Arts Club, we do a lot of work with students and the arts. We are a 100-year old arts educational organization that admitted men on a full and equal basis with women 100 years ago. Freddie Ferrer has been to the Club, and Mayor Dinkins visits as often as he can. The food is REAL good, lots of receptions and stuff like that, with art exhibition openings. I am planning a series at the Club for the Millennium called "The Dialogue of Civilizations". The questions that you asked are really imporrtant ones and go to the heart of the matter. I.M. Pei has received two Gold Medal Awards from us, and maybe we can arrange for some way in which we and lots of you can all participate in some event. Would like to speak with you about it, maybe even have you help plan it. Send an e-mail. I'm wired. Later, Richard J.
