MonaLisa Analysis: Part 3

Thedescription of Mona Lisa, a painting by the group opened moreinformation about the understanding and interpretations of works ofart. The original description of the group about Mona Lisa was basedon the beauty and the physical appearance of the painting. We focusedmore on the way the painting looks and how appealing the appearancewas to the eye. In addition, we described the way the painting ispositioned in the frame in order to form a perfect proportion withthe background and the environment. At the same time, we focused onthe color schemes and the artistic styles that the painting portrays.By focusing on the picture and the elements of art, it is clear thedescription did not explore the contextual aspects of the painting asa work of art.Aftergoing through the steps of analysis by the group, our view of thepainting has greatly changed for the better. At the same time, ourunderstanding about the beautiful historical painting changed toinclude more relevant meanings and interpretations. One of thechanges is the understanding that the context of the painting givesimportant information about it as a piece of art. Therefore, theunderstanding of the reasons for the painting, the subject and thecircumstances leading to the creation of the Mona Lisa painting iscritical in the understanding of the work of art from its historicaltimes. Another change is the type of the painting it is and theperiod of time it represents. This gives more context of its creationas high Renaissance painting.Throughthis process, we specifically discovered that the Mona Lisa paintingwas painted during the High Renaissance period of time. This periodrepresented the culmination of developments in artists and growth ofgenius artists and creative’s. The analysis opened more insight tounderstand that Leonardo DA Vinci was one of the greatest artists ofthis period. This information explains why the median where Mona Lisais painted on is made of an oil and wood panel. This was also theperiod when there were high styles of paintings and artisticcreativity.The“close looking” raised the questions of analysis from differentsteps of the process. On the step of looking, the “close looking”raised the questions of what did we notice? And what did we overlook?The step of description raised questions like what do you see and howdo you see it. The step of think led to the asking of questions likewhat is the story behind the painting. Other questions include whatis the setting or the place? What is the work of art about? And whatwas the artist trying to communicate when he painted the piece ofwork? At the same time, the connect stage led to questions like whatthe reading us reminds about, whether the reading connects to anypart in our lives and comparison of the painting with the currentones.Thisportrait says a lot about the adoration that the rich class had forwomen at the time. Being a painting about the wife of a richmerchant, the painting shows how men valued the women of the society.In addition, the painting communicates the importance of women in thesociety, not only for beauty and housework, but also as people whobring societies together. The picture shows the high regard whichpeople at the time had placed on women.
