Enlightening Painting Of Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa (Leonardo Da Vinci) was more than a painting but a challenge to reproduce the real life. Using special cameras, the researchers managed to reveal that masterpiece. Art researcher Pascal Cotte says da Vinci made MonaLisa painting in several layers. The last layer using a special glass to improve optical properties of three-dimensional illusion face. On top of that Da Vinci painted details such as eye color. “That explains why the color eyes disappeared - they have faded due to chemical reactions or have been cleared,” said Cotte.

He discovered the secret of Mona Lisa’s number is 240 megapixel camera. The resolution can measure the light was so sensitive to see through the top surface layer of paint and revealed underneath. For example, infra-red imaging showed da Vinci’s moving finger positions on the left hand “to provide a more relaxed position, consistent in his smile,” Cotte said. He said that Mona Lisa was completely different from 500 years ago, when the blue sky and yellow skin are not the subject.Underlying layer of painted faces with white lead and mercury Vermillion. In the bottom layer, the artist adds a layer of glass to create three-dimensional effect. “I’m not saying that he succeeded in producing performance stereo effect, but if you want to achieve it then it is the best way to do it,” Cotte said. “But now look completely different how he painted it. All the optical effects have disappeared.” He says, for the da Vinci, Mona Lisa was more than a painting but a challenge to reproduce the real life. Cotte’s function was explained within an exhibit, Secret Hireling shepherd in the Art gallery associated with Science and Industry within Manchester
