Leonardo da Vinci

The Mona Lisa

This is The Mona Lisa created by Leonardo da Vinci. This piece was created between 1503 and 1506. This piece may be located in an art museum. It may be found in educational books. This piece was majorly popular an was duplicated many different times and the artwork was changed, for example the background or the facial features. This piece is interesting to me because it is mysterious and not much is known about it. Humanism is what I think this artwork exemplifies. Leonardo is portraying the beauty of the human with this piece.
