Siempre me ha parecido triste... pero bello

For 95% of the world's population this is the only painting they've ever heard of, but even fewer can name the artist. More then 50% of visitors to the Louvre head straight to the crowded new Mona Lisa room, hang out there for about 20 minutes before shooting a bad cellphone photo of the portrait, and then head straight for the exit. This painting for me represents how the vast majority of the public are removed from the narrative that is visual art, as an elite few control and dictate what the public get to see, and what artists become successful.

Shay Culligan, although I agree with most of what you say, I am wondering what is your conclusion on the importance and aethetic merits of the Mona Lisa? Is it overrated or what? Because I have explored this painting for more than thirty two years and, believe me, there IS significant merit to it's designation as the greatest painting. Here are the results of my observations of the plethora of hidden images therein.
Let me know what you think.

Teodora Stoica
Portretul Mona Lisa este cea mai fascinantă si captivantă operă din perioada Renasterii si pana in prezent prin procedeul pictural de mobilitate continua al fizionomiei trasaturilor sufletesti de trecere rapida a acestora de la o stare la alta, evocate de aerul enigmatic al portretului in sine si de surasul tainic, in deosebi,
de persiflarea ochilor cu privire superioara, uneori si alteori seducatoare ca si zambetul senzual, aproape erotic, oglindeste caracterul original al tehnicii aplicate de Leonardo da Vinci prin intercorelarea armonioasa a cunostintelor sale anatomice, stiintifice si artistice in obtinerea acestui concept unic de frumusete spirituala.
Teodora Stoica-Ti:

Portrait Mona Lisa is the most fascinating and captivating opera from the time of the Renaissance and until in the present through painterly process, mobility continues, of the physiognomy of the spiritual traits of fast crossing of the thereof from one status to another, evoked by the enigmatic air of the portrait itself and by hidden smile, especially, by bantering of the eyes with
superior glance sometimes and other times seductive, as and the sensual smile, almost, erotic reflect the original character of the technique applied by Leonardo da Vinci through intercorrelation harmonious of his knowledge of anatomy, scientific and artistic in obtaining this unique concept by the spiritual beauty.

Desde los colores de la obra restaurada de Rafael en La Virgen del jilquero, el pensamiento lleva a esta obra: seran estos los colores utilizados por Leonardo?
Bella obra, un icono de la pintura.

There is more going on than what meets our eyes . . . Prevalent in the major works of Leonardo Da Vinci is 'phi' (also known as the Golden Ratio or the Golden Mean), a ratio of 1:1.618. This is found in nature and creation, and the Fibonacci sequence.

All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.
