SELF PORTRAIT by MASTER da LOLLIES



Leonardo Da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452, in the small Tuscan town of Vinci, near Florence.

Da Vinci was a Florentine artist, one of the great masters of the High Renaissance, who was also celebrated as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, and scientist. His profound love of knowledge and research was the keynote of both his artistic and scientific endeavors. His innovations in the field of painting influenced the course of Italian art for more than a century after his death, and his scientific studies—particularly in the fields of anatomy, optics, and hydraulics—anticipated many of the developments of modern science.

His paintings among many others are MonaLisa and his own self. These two were thought to be of his self potraits. A hand-written note from the 16th century titles the drawing "Leonardus Vincius (in red chalk) - self-portrait at an advanced age (in charcoal)," so that its interpretation as Leonardo's self-portrait during the last years of his life is generally accepted nowadays.

Regardless of the new theories today to say that those are not his self pictures, I think these theories are probably the most accepted by the non-artistic and non-historians circle.

Thus, trying to emulate the Master himself, here I a with a self picture…

Unfortunately, I neither have the smile of MonaLisa nor the bushy brows of the Master…this is the best I can come up with.

While at that, SMILE. I’ve got your photos. Yes..you, you and You.

Insyallah Lollies, when we get back and have the time, bukan apa susah nak janji awal-awal because sometimes the trip is so short there isn't much time to meet up even with old friends. But if time permits and the oppurtunity arises we shall meet :)
