Mona Lisa

Contemporary lead artist Georg Brandner Styria Austria releasing Viktor Vijay's book Mona Lisa does not smile anymore in the presence of Sdn Manmohan Chadha and Sdr Baljit S. Chadha on 9th Feb. 2011 at Visual Art Gallery.
My article Mona Lisa does not smile anymore based on my book with the same name. I am asked where is Mona Lisa in there? Well as I say in the article that art does not seek the truth of Mona Lisa it seeks belief in the myth that has grown around Mona Lisa--not the painting but who was Mona Lisa and what is the Mona Lisa smile. The scientific, the logical, rational attempts to find the real Mona Lisa or the physical reality of Mona Lisa smile are but redundant futility. for who cares whether it was Leonardo da Vinci himself Mona Lisa or a man disguised as woman. But what would you say when one myth transforms into another myth? The Da Vinci Code book by Dan Brown has created a double myth--the myth behind the mythic Mona Lisa!!! When you read my book you have a greater exploration of the myth-making in the art and culture by a society.
