Tested Photoshop Gradients On Mona Lisa. I tested the gradients on the people image the other day. Tonight I felt like doing a gradient version of Mona Lisa.
Mona Lisa (La Gioconda or La Joconde) is a half-length portrait of a woman by the Leonardo da Vinci, which has been acclaimed as “the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world.”
The painting, thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, is in oil on a poplar panel, and is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506.
It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of the French Republic, on permanent display at the Musée du Louvre in Paris since 1797.
The ambiguity of the subject’s expression, which is frequently described as enigmatic, the monumentality of the composition, the subtle modelling of forms and the atmospheric illusion’s were novel qualities that have contributed to the continuing fascination and study of the work.

Leonardo used a pyramid design to place the woman simply and calmly in the space of the painting. Her folded hands form the front corner of the pyramid. Her breast, neck and face glow in the same light that models her hands.
The light gives the variety of living surfaces an underlying geometry of spheres and circles. Leonardo referred to a seemingly simple formula for seated female figure: the images of seated Madonna, which were widespread at the time
