What I write today is completely my view on this topic and not meant for any controversy or to put down any Artwork
For years I have been hearing about this Beautiful painting of Monalisa at the Louvre, and it was one of my dream and in the to do list to see this once in my lifetime. I had read that it is one of the most beautiful Art work of Leonardo da Vinci so for sure had my curiosity to see it.
Luckily I got a chance to visit Paris and Louvre Museum. The Museum is beyond words. Such beautiful, mind blowing paintings, sculptors, culture representation. Dignified Art at its best. You have Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Jean Auguste, Jacques-Louis David and who’s who of the Art world there.
I got an opportunity to visit the Louvre twice, but the first time I was visiting Louvre, I was so excited because I was going to visit my most dreamed painting of Monalisa. I remember had a sprained ankle that day and had some problems walking. I was myself doubting how I will be able to go through such a big place, but the excitement kept me going.
I walked my way through the museum witnessing the work of all the great artist which was a sheer delight and then came the Monalisa, and to my surprise it was the biggest disappointment of my life. I was expecting something magnificent but what I witnessed was nothing compared to the other art work in the Gallery. Personally I feel it is a much hyped up art. It is a beautiful art but not the way it has been showcased.
I was very curious to see it, so I decided to visit that section of the Art first, paving my way through I reached that part of the gallery and there was complete madness. There was so much crowd in this part of the Gallery. They have a railing and you can see the work only from a distance of around 8 to 10 feet, everyone was flocking there to get a picture of themselves with the Monalisa Painting.
I also managed to get one clicked, but there were many like me I noticed in the crowd who did not get fascinated with the Art. I was observing everyone’s reaction for some time and it was all mixed, some were so delighted, some were like Ok we have seen it once, and then there were few who just made one glance and walked away. Though I spent quite some time analyzing the work and trying to understand the reason behind it’s so much popularity. Had read it somewhere that it is the most studied work in the history of Arts due to its composition techniques and may be that is one of the major reason why it is so popular, but from my common eyes I really could not figure that out or may be the view was from too far and hence I could not really get the real charm of the Art work.
Nevertheless when I visited the second time, I made it a point to take a glance at it for once.
You see the picture below of the Monalisa, I did not get very good results from my camera too on this one.
I tried to click it along with me, there was mad rush in this area, everyone was trying to take their pictures from the best possible spot, but it was very difficult..
