. Is the price worth the so-called 70 million? Or do foreigners cheat Chinese people by making fake money? (two other questions in the original title)
“the lost Mona Lisa: the statue of Gioconda
as the staff of the Italian Marino cultural project, the co organizer of this exhibition, I am willing to answer this question for you.
the original photography of the naked Mona Lisa (naked Gioconda) by Zhuang Zexi
is a European 16th century canvas. The main character in the painting is the lady of Florence at that time. One is the mistress Lisa del Giocondo, also known as Gioconda, That is, the well-known Mona Lisa (from Giorgio Vasari’s famous biography of art celebrities, translated as Mrs. Lisa). The female images as like as two peas are on the left wrist, and the middle finger and index finger are extended. The whole body’s dynamic is the same. The natural landscape in the distance of the picture is also very similar. The difference between the two works is that in this painting, the Mona Lisa looks straight ahead, while the Mona Lisa in the Louvre looks slightly sideways. For the tone of the picture, this painting is more elegant and quiet, while the other one is more mysterious and colorful. The naked Mona Lisa is 90cm long and 73cm wide, which is a whole circle larger than the Mona Lisa of the Louvre. Is the work
for this question, I can answer with certainty: today, this painting has been identified as the work of the Da Vinci school, and whether it was personally completed by Da Vinci requires rigorous academic discussion and scientific appraisal. At present, academia believes that the original author of this work should be one of Leonardo da Vinci, salai and Bernardino Luini.
however, this does not affect us to appreciate the beauty and significance of the painting. Because compared with the Mona Lisa of the Louvre, this work presents more details: exquisite hair style and rich eyes. And in the mid-19th century, the painting was indeed displayed in the Louvre with her “sisters”. Then it was sealed in a museum in Rome for more than a century.
“the naked Mona Lisa (naked Qiao Konda), part of the collection history of
:” the collection history of
is very tortuous. Its original collector was the rospigliosi family, which was famous in the Italian Renaissance, and it was named “leportraitdela joconde, Ma? Tressede Fran? OIS I, Parl é onardde Vinci” (portrait of Gioconda, mistress of Francois, works of Da Vinci) in its collection list. After
, this work changed hands with cardinal fichi (1763-1839, uncle of). After his death, in 1845, he was collected by the Roman auction house astaal montedipiet à Di Roma. Giampiero Campana (1808-1880), the head of the auction house, bought the work, but was arrested for fraud in 1857. The work was confiscated as stolen goods and handed over to the auction house for auction to pay off its debt. Therefore, Napoleon III (1808-1873, son of Napoleon’s brother Luigi Bonaparte) bought the painting. In 1863, the painting came to Paris and was exhibited as a collection of the Louvre.
we don’t know how the work changed hands to Giuseppe primoli. There is only one hypothesis: primoli lived in Paris with his aunt Matilde Bonaparte, the niece of Napoleon III, after 1870. In these years, they mingled in the art salon known as the “Art Palace of Notre Dame in Paris”, and produced many famous writers and artists, such as Flaubert, Dumas Dumas, gonggul brothers, Ernest Herbert and so on. Received the painting for this.
at the end of the 18th century, this work was exhibited in the East Palace of St. Petersburg. The then printmaker Salvatore Cardelli made a set of prints for it, as follows:

the small characters in the lower left corner say: Leonardoda Vinci, and the lower right corner is: Salvatore Cardelli. This is a popular printmaking format in the 18th-19th century. The original author’s name and the names of the printmaker and the printing factory are engraved on the left and right respectively. In other words, at least from the rospigliosi family collection to the East Palace exhibition at the end of the 18th century, this work has been considered to be the original work of Leonardo da Vinci..
this work was exhibited in the Louvre in 1863, and its author was not defined at that time. According to the literature records at that time, among the stolen goods auctioned by Cishan auction house and bought by Napoleon III, there was a work signed by Leonardo da Vinci and a painting by hand. This is the portrait of Leonardo da Vinci. The most recent definition appeared in 1905, when the work had quietly changed hands with the primoli foundation and was exhibited in Rome. The exhibition catalogue at this time quoted the views of the late historian Gustav Friedrich waagen and defined it as the work of Leonardo da Vinci.
after a century of dust, in 2008, this work was exhibited in the Leonardo da Vinci Museum in Leonardo da Vinci’s hometown Town, and was named Leonardo da Vinci’s original work “naked Joe CONDA”. Later, it was also exhibited in Pescara province.
answer some questions from friends:
1 Because this is a canvas painting, it can’t be Leonardo da Vinci’s work.
A: among the identified works of Leonardo da Vinci, we have also found oil on canvas, such as the portrait of women created around 1500.
2. If the question of the original author is still controversial, why should we definitely display the works in the name of Leonardo da Vinci? “Spekds Exhibition” and “spkds Exhibition” have their own academic and dynamic views, and “spekds Exhibition” and “spkds Exhibition” have their own academic and dynamic views. As the curator and co organizer of this exhibition in China, it is necessary for us to present our view that this work is likely to be the original work of Leonardo da Vinci.
