Transcript of Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa For years people have questioned who "Mona Lisa" is. It is generally accepted that it was a privately commissioned painting of a mans wife, but some think it might be his mother, others think it may be a friend, and others believe that it is actually a self portrait in disguise. "Mona Lisa" is one of the most famous, most widely parodied, most visited, and most often sung about painting of all time. On August 21, 1911 the famous painting was stolen from its place on the wall of the Louvre in Paris France. A painter visiting the museum noticed it was missing and reported it, only to be told it may have been with photographers. Guards and museum officials later discovered that it had been stolen. Theft Painted in 1503/04 by
Leonardo Da Vinci,
who is best known for his paintings, "Mona Lisa" and "The Last Supper" Leonardo Da Vinci was born April 15, 1452. He began to draw at an early age. At 14 he was an apprentice, and within 6 years was a master. About Da Vinci Da Vinci did not see a divide between art and science; he had over 13,000 pages of notes and drawings of inventions and machines (including ideas for flying machines that appeared 400 years before flight!), war machines, plant studies, architectural and anatomical drawings. It was 2 years before it was discovered that an Italian museum employee had stolen the painting by slipping it under his coat, believing that it should be returned to Italy, the home of the artist. He was caught when attempting to sell the famous work of art. How To Be "Mona"-ficent! 1. Eyes on Speaker look at me when I'm talking to you 2.
