    Interesting that this is being said now, not 1950, 1970, 1995, etc......




    Mona Lisa might actually be da Vinci’s male lover

    Mona Lisa is based in part on Leonardo da Vinci’s male lover, an Italian art detective claims.
    Silvano Vincenti, who has been analyzing da Vinci’s world-renowned painting for years, believes it is not just based on Lisa Gherardini, a Florentine merchant’s wife, but also the artist’s supposed main male squeeze, Gian Giacomo Caprotti.
    “The Mona Lisa is androgynous — half man and half woman,” he told the Telegraph. “You see it particularly in Mona Lisa’s nose, her forehead and her smile.”
    Vincenti has been studying infrared scans of the painting, currently on display at the Louvre in Paris, and believes there are similarities in Mona Lisa’s mysterious smirk to other paintings da Vinci did of Caprotti, who was nicknamed Salai, or the Little Devil.

    Salai became part of da Vinci’s team when he was very young, just 10 years old, and worked with him for more than two decades.
    Back in 2011, The Post reported that Vincenti described Salai’s relationship with the Italian painter as “ambiguous,” a notion many other art historians support as well.
    And Gherardini was an important person in da Vinci’s life during the three years the artist was painting the Mona Lisa starting in 1503, as he was living in her lavish Italian villa at the time.
    But Vincenti’s theory — which has been met with criticism from other art experts in the past — was slammed again.
    “This is a mish-mash of known things, semi-known things and complete fantasy,” Martin Kemp, an art history professor at Oxford, told the site. “The infrared images do nothing to support the idea that Leonardo somehow painted a blend of Lisa Gherardini and Salai.”
    Here’s what’s really making Mona Lisa’s smile in this picture:

    Sounds like that's one hell of a job being an art detective.

    When i was in school, the prevailing theory was the Mona Lisa was Leonardo's self portrait as a woman...supposedly there are pencil drawings of himself under the paint.
