Museum of Renaissance Art
The painting "Mona Lisa" was painted by, Leonardo Da Vinci. It was said it was a portrait of Lisa Gherardini. The painting is most famous for the way he painted her smile. Some people call it the "Vanishing Smile" because one moment you see she's serious and then she's smiling. This is because her eyes send mixed signals. It's more like her eyes are smiling and her lips aren't.
The "Last Supper" was painted by Leonardo Da Vinci. It would be considered one of the most famous pieces of artwork in the world. The piece shows Jesus and his 12 disciples. Some of the disciples in the painting have more woman-like features, some say that some of the men he painted just look more like woman then others but others think that he actually meant to paint the woman, to show the woman who followed Jesus.
