Transcript of Leonardo da Vinci and the Medici Family

Leonardo da Vinci considered one of the greatest artists to have ever lived, if not the greatest. So this, is the Mona Lisa.
It is the most visited, most written about, most sung about, and most parodied about painting in the world. The painting itself is oil on poplar panel, and is supposedly a painting of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Fransesco del Giocondo.
It has been stolen a few times, but the first time was in 1911, and it was returned in 1913. It is now kept behind bulletproof glass in the Louvre, France. One of Leonardo da Vinci's painting styles was called sfumato, where you layer paints from light to dark. It helped show more depth and it was used in the Mona Lisa. The Baptism of Christ da Vinci helped his mentor, Verrochio, paint this when he was in his teens. The mediums are oil on canvas. Oil wasn't too popular in Italy, it was more of a medium used in Northern Europe. But Leonardo started to mix oil with tempura, instead of egg whites. The oil mixture gave more versatile colors and you could layer the paint to create depth. The Last Supper A painting depicting the last meal shared between Jesus and his disciples. It was painted by da Vinci in a convent in Milan. Head of a Woman This is an unfinished painting, drawn up around 1500.
Medium: Oil on canvas with amber and chalk. 3' 3" x 7' 1" and it is kept in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy. The Annunciation 2' 6" x 1' 9". The Mona Lisa is actually really small because when it was stolen a few times, it had acid poured onto it and rocks thrown at it, which decreased its size. 15' 1" x 29' The Medici Family The Medici Family was one of the wealthiest families in Europe, and was the wealthiest in Florence. They were the patrons to legendary artists and a very famous scientist. Leonardo da Vinci Raphael Donatello The Medici Family gave Donatello the materials to create his very famous sculpture, David. This sculpture is made of bronze and was created between 1430 and 1440. Galileo: physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher. Galileo was a very important figure in the Scientific Revolution. He helped discover that the Earth revolved around the sun, not that the sun revolved around the Earth, like the church taught. Leonardo da Vinci's horse head shaped lyre.
da Vinci was in the service of the Medici when he made this. Ferdinand gave Galileo the position of professorship at the University of Pisa in 1588 This is the Judith and Holofernes sculpture, created by Donatello in 1460.
Medium: bronze So this is Pope Leo X, who supported Raphael so in return, Raphael painted this. Bust of Lorenzo the Magnificent, created by Verrochio. The Virgin on the Rocks Lady with an Ermine
