  • I can remember my Art's history teacher saying about Mona Lisa with so much love and enthusiam that I start Being interested in art. But, my knowlodge in this area is limited to what my eyes like or not. I don't care much about colors, technique, period, etc. For me, each paint I see, makes me feel in a different way and bring me inspiration, that will define how much it is important.
    When I saw Mona Lisa for the first time, I was disappointed. It is much smaller than I thought.
    How is it worldwide known and inspires millions of artist until nowadays? Why did people, as Napoleao Bonaparte, fall in love with it?
    Guess, Leonardo da Vinci is a very clever person and also he loved this paint himself, that other people could feel this love. Many questions around the meaning of the elements remain till now.
    What is size, quality and style if compared to marketing, talent, love for what you do and a bit of luck, of course?
