This video is to reveal that the hair-do of Leonardo DaVinci's "Mona Lisa" was a very popular hair-do among noble women in Renaissance Italy. This video is one of many that supports the research of scholar, historian and author, Maike Vogt-Luerssen and has been approved by her.
This video is in support of the belief that "Mona Lisa" was a real person of high nobility, ... not a silk merchant's wife, nor a man in a dress, nor a man's conceptualized (and unrealized) ideal of femeninity. But, that her identity is truly: Duchess Isabella of Aragon, 1470-1524. This view is not only that of Mrs. Maike Vogt-Luerssen's, but was also shared by the late Robert Payne of the 20th century, a novelist, historian, poet and biographer of Leonardo Da Vinci.
The customs behind the paintings tell us much about this time in history and its fascinating people. The depictions of Diety, the Virgin Mary, and Saints, are the faces of real people, not random models, but of nobilty, who had the priviledge of "lending" their faces to the beautiful religious art of the Reniassance, all according a strict heirachy of rank of customs and traditons. Yes!! What we are seeing are real people of importance in Italian Renaissance religous art.
That is why there are so many reoccuring faces! These are not models of the artists imagination, nor of random people of no importance. The patrons of the arts were the powerful noblity of Italy. The artesans of the court were not perfectly free to paint whatsoever and whomsoever they pleased, unlike what is popularly assumed. Thanks to Mrs. Vogt-Luerssen, historian of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, she has discovered what has become long-forgotten for many centuries. These marvelous paintings contain amazing information!
It was the privilege and custom of royalty to have their faces depicted as Diety, Saints, and gods. So were these people honored and immortalized during their lifetimes and for future generations to see.
