Famous Art

In College I took Art Appreciation and I really enjoyed it.  I head several negative comments from fellow classmates that it was boring.   However, since I had seen a lot of the art that we were studying it made it interesting and fun for me.   The beauty of artist from the past.  We have two famous copies of painting in our house.  First the best painting ever "Mona Lisa" I think she is amazing and beautiful.  The second one we have is "Creation of Adam" not the whole thing just the fingers touching.
   Mona Lisa was painted by Leonardo da Vinci.  She is housed in Louvre in Paris.  That is where I saw her.  She is nothing like you would think.  She is very small and behind 5 or 6 pieces of glass.  Researchers think that the oil painting could be several different people; his mother, Isabella of Naples, Cecilia Gallerani, Costanza D'Avalos, Duchess of Francavilla, Isabella d'Este or even Leonardo himself. 

I think its Leonardo secret lover.  That is why he painted her in kind of dark surrounding because he could never have her.
