EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “Making the Mona Lisa”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
When Leonardo da Vinci began painting the portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of the wealthy Florentine cloth merchant Francesco del Giocondo, in 1503, little did he know just how much employment he would generate for future art historians. From theories concerning her enigmatic smile, to the painting being a self-portrait of Leonardo in drag, to her possibly being pregnant, it seems that just about everything that COULD have been written about the Mona Lisa HAS been written. Join Dr. Rocky for this exclusive webinar where, in addition to analyzing the formal aspects of the painting, he will discuss just why the painting is so famous.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
