The Louvre has corrected the date of creation of the ’Mona Lisa’ automatic translate
Experts of the Louvre have substantially revised the date of the creation of the «Gioconda»: Leonardo da Vinci worked on his legendary canvas for ten years more than previously thought.
According to The Art Newspaper , the Louvre confirmed the information about the change in the date of the creation of the painting «Mona Lisa». Recall that until recently, a famous portrait dated 1503-06-mi years, but now official data indicate the time of work on the canvas as 1503-19gg. These important edits are already included in the catalog of the Louvre exhibition «Saint Anna, the last masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci» (Saint Anne, Leonardo da Vinci’s Ultimate Masterpiece), which will be held from March 29 to June 25.
Changes were obtained during the research work of the Louvre on the theme of Leonardo. The study of the copy of «Saint Anne with the Madonna and Child Christ» from the Louvre and a copy of «Mona Lisa» from the Prado showed that the paintings were painted at one time and finished shortly before the death of the artist in France in 1519.
Partially the evidence was provided by a copy from the Prado . Recall that the landscape against the backdrop (and the original and copies), «Mona Lisa» is partly built on a composition from the Royal Assembly, dated 1515-20 years (it is exhibited in the Louvre along with 21 other art objects).
The Louvre exhibition marks the end of the restoration of the painting «Saint Anna with the Madonna and Child Christ.» The restoration was sponsored by Barry Lam, president of the Taiwan company Quanta Computer and a collector of Chinese painting. At the exhibition for the first time the back of the panel is displayed, the pictures on which were found 4 years ago.
The original «Mona Lisa» is hung out in the invariably popular hall in a number of main galleries and is equipped with a new tablet with a revised creation date. A copy of the painting in the Prado, part of the exposition «Saint Anna», was given to a group of researchers for a couple of hours so that they could directly work on the canvas. The copy was more informative than the original, in particular, the version from the Prado depicts several towns on top of the hills that are not visible on the original.
