It has been a long time since I've seen so many images and texts related to The Subject of the Mona Lisa. It was as if I was back in Graduate school, Renaissance studies class. I was particularly intrigued by your material on the color of Mona's Eyes, and hearing Leonardo's original music.

The new jumble section is just so challenging and fun for all my students. The July newsletter, with its logic puzzle is certaily worthy of Leonardian Intellect.

As a Special Education Instructor at LIU I was pleased to see Special Ed links on this site and to also see how special needs learners can take the quiz, listen to the music and send postcards. A wonderful site that provides accessto Leonardo Studies.

This site could fit within the core knowledge curriculum theory of E.D. Hirsch, which says that all students across the nation should learn a unifor mbody of knowledge at each specfic grade level. Certainly, Leonardo studies contain facts that are applicable on various grade levels.Your site certainly has enough material to cover much of the demands of this new educational approach.

Hello,I never thought of Da Vinci as a model of Mona Lisa. It's very intriguing.

As I was reading the New York Times today, I noted that the King Tut exhibit has now returned to the National Gallery of Art in Washington. It was great reading the Holland Cotter article and visiting the King Tut resources. As always, you are "ahead of the Times".

I think that the study on Mona Lisa about Leonardo da Vinci may be related with the study of the frenmch painter Marcel Duchamp very well this way. Interesting because another kind of interest on the subject of a painting.

It is only through my University of Alaska friends that I found this page. I was desperate to obtain authentic and updated knowledge of the influence of Leonardo in the Arts and Sciences. Fortunately, I was able to find MORE than I was looking for. His music, his designs, his never realized Horse and flight inventions are all followed up here. I feel connected with Leonardo enthusiasts all over the world!

The mona is such a captivating lady> I now see the resemblance to Leonardo as professor Schwartz proves in her graphic metamorphosis_ Maybe he was capturing an inner sensation of feeling like a woman? maybe it was a memorium to his mother__ Perhaps he loved giocandas wife so much that he stRetched out the sittings for years>anyway it was a breakthrough masterpiece we may never fully understand!

I needed to do a research report for my Rennaisance studies course and found that this site is the most helpful in its information, history and links. I told a couple of friends in class about it and now everyone is using the site as a bibliographic reference in their papers as well! A whole major study area cvould be developed from what's in here. Thanks.

I just visited your site (through a recommendation of a teacher collegue of mine)and I found that the information there to be so vast, I can develop a whole session on the History of Science, as well as my teaching methods course. This is due in large part to the extensive and well thought oout lesson plans linked to the map. Everyone out there can find something new and interesting here--I'm sure!

I think she's smiling because she's in a good mood. No one wants a picture
of sadness, a picture of joy that's what is wanted. So smile on.
PA USA - Saturday, June 22, 2002 at 18:21:39 (EDT)
Da Vinci was great... his work is amazingly beautiful. In elementry school there was a picure of Mona Lisa that I always admired. Altough, I never truly appriciated his work untill I HAD to write a report on him in sixth grade.I really loved doing that assignment and attempting to recreate some of his work.

In reviewing tradebooks, I noted Leonardo's Horse in a book by Jean Fritz. I see you have a picture of the horse. You added much to my knowledge.

It is a revelation to see a site whose subject already suggests richness and variety can also find connections with important modern events such as The Nasa Mural in the South Bronx. The spirit of this site truly parallels Leonardo's own legacy... to find the undercurrents of connectivity in the most disparate elements and synthesize presentations that are compelling for all to see!

I am 7 years old. I think that Mona Lisa is a real person.
Clearwater, FL USA - Thursday, June 06, 2002 at 18:41:13 (EDT)
i dont think that the reason mona lisa was smilimg was because leonardo had drawn himself. what i think is that maybe the reason why she was smilimg was because to me it had looked like leonardo had spent alot of his time working on her hands and trying to perfect them and he might have not really bothered with the face, had not worked on the face as much as the hands. Or it could have maybe been that something had intruiged mona lisa to smile and look in a different direction. But why was she looking in that direction? Had something made her look in that direction.

As we aproach the close of this year your December dedication page with its beautiful student graphic comemmerating the World trade center, fittingly concludes the year on the same note of optimism and has the same faith in the future that resounds in Leonardo's writings

How do I find the picture of the Norwegian bridge? How do I find a picture of the Last Supper? How do I get into your site? Why not put a search on it? Obviously full of interesting stuff, but I can't find it.
Plymouth, United Kingdom - Tuesday, November 20, 2001 at 14:50:09 (EST)
Thank-you for the insite on this wonderful universal genius' painting. His inventiveness, versatility, and wide ranging intellectual spirit have made him a symbol of Renaissance spirit. Leonardo has had many other paintings, and none other is as famous as the Mona Lisa. It just makes you realize that oh of course his most famous painting would be of himself, even if it is a woman!
