Description of the artwork by Leonardo da Vinci Mona Lisa (Gioconda)


The picture presented in a rectangular format shows an image of a woman in dark clothes. which is in the half-turn position. They are sitting in a chair, her hands are folded together, one hand rests on the armrest of the chair, and the other is on top of the first.

The woman is depicted facing the viewer. The woman’s lying hair is parted and presented to the viewer in the form of smooth and flat, clearly visible through the transparent veil lying on them. Dress on a girl of green color with thin assemblies and yellow sleeves in clutches. The head is in a slightly tucked up position.

The art critic Boris Vipper, when describing the painting, emphasized that Mona Lisa's face reflects the fashion of the quattrocento: Mona Lisa's eyebrows are shaved along with the hair on the top of her forehead.

The lower part of the picture cuts off the other half of her body, and as a result the portrait turned out to be half-length. In the early times, the picture could have a wider size and could accommodate a pair of side columns of the loggia, of which only a pair of column bases remained today, xbm fragments are clearly observed at the edges of the parapet. The Loggia leads to a desert wilderness in the presence of winding streams and lakes that are surrounded by many snowy mountains that are visible behind all the figures.

The artist introduced Mona Lisa in a sitting position against the backdrop of a beautiful landscape, and already at first glance the association of her greatly enlarged figure with a large mountain viewed in the distance and the landscape gives the image the presence of extraordinary grandeur.

In addition, this image was facilitated by the presence of contrast in the form of increased plastic tactility of the character and its smooth silhouette in the presence of going into a foggy distance, similar to a landscape with the presence of bizarre rocks and prominent water channels among them.

The portrait of "Mona Lisa" rightfully managed to earn the title of the best example relating to the portrait genre of the era of the Italian High Renaissance.
