the main reason its a big deal (besides the fact that it was painted by one of the smartest and most famous men to ever live) is because of how many times its been stolen. as a painting its not even that good. but over the years its been stolen and restolen so many times that it became infamous.
>>572018580 Clearly you don't know shit. You illiterate scum, I hate most of my students "As a painting it's not even that good" Anon, you pretentious shit, shut the fuck up, -an art institute of Chicago professor. Will prove with credentials if needed.
>>572019802 go on the street or in school or whever the fuck you are and ask people whether they know the fed reserve system is not controlled by the govt and see how many get it right. then watch reaction of ppl who are like WOTTTTT IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A GOVT ENTITY!?
>>572019728 Different anon, but. Yeah. It's not that great. The background in particular is a fucking joke, and it's barely anatomically sound. The only thing it really has going for it is it's material rendering is pretty ok. Not fuckmazing. Just ok.
The Mona Lisa was one of da Vinci's most profound pieces because the noble who commissioned it actually ended up turning it down.
In an age of high propriety and straight laces, it was an intensely suggestive picture. See, women were still basically property then, so for him to paint a portrait of her was not unheard of. Sure.
Him painting a portrait, ergo, meant he painted what he saw. Leo da V was, as you may know, a bastard and a stray; he was a hobo, called 'da Vinci' because he was from, well, Vinci, and he had no family name but he was a profound painter. He was also kind of a douchebag, ran out on a lot of commissions and was generally, I guess, a philanderer.
The Mona Lisa portrait features the titular lady smiling. The implication is that she's smiling at Leonardo da Vinci, which implies that the two were involved in an affair of some sort-- when he presented it to the commissioner, the guy threw a bitchfit and threatened him with some shit and kicked his ass out, because he'd painted a portrait of his wife, essentially, looking like what constituted being a whore back in the days of the Renaissance.
At least that's all I recall about it and I may not be accurate on that
I assume the value is because it represented a controversy and through that, gained an infamy that gave it a name.
>>572016179 Well because of all the fucking retards, arts majors and arts professors and fucking donatellos and da vincies and van goghs in this thread I feel obliged to tell you all that you are all wrong and fucking stupid. I have been to Louvre (the museum that has the painting atm) and I was explained why is it so famous. It is becsuse od her dmile. A dmile that doesnt look like its there, but it is. No one except Da Vinci was or is able to paint it that perfect also, this painting des not have a price Also, the painting in the main gallery of Louvre is fake because all the lights and flashes would damage it. The real one is kept in the basement of the museum
>>572022470 Dude the fact I've fucking been there has nothing to do with me trying to brag I just saw replies like: "Its famous cuse its been stolen durrdurr" or "its famous cuz his style was groundbeefing" or " it famous csuse its da vinci" I just explained the main reason why its fucking fdmous, which was the question of the thread no one else wrore why, so I did
