La Giaconda

In last saturday’s workshop, one of the technical assignments was to do a transfer using Golden Mix More Media and the image provided by the instructor was of the Mona Lisa. Da Vinci's painting is indelibly engraved in all our minds as one of the images that signifies art. It also crosses the line of art and commerce—you can buy your own "Mona Lisa" on almost any product, from umbrellas to fireplace screens. Here is a group by differing artists, who like Don Quixote are tilting not at windmills, but at art. In order: Duchamp, Dali, Warhol "If one is good, thirty are better", Basquiat, Rauschenberg, Wiley and my favorite an obento sushi lunch box.
