Codey Lorenzana HW4: The Mona Lisa

In regards to my feelings about the Mona Lisa, i’m not that passionate about it. I recognize it as an iconic art piece that stands out from its time as well as the fame of it and its creator. However, it is kinda staggering to see how blown out of proportion the art work is. In the article the Mona Lisa’s presence alone devalues the other art present in the Louvre and creates a mess of problems for the museum and visitors. In my opinion, I agree with the article and feel that the smartest thing to do would be to relocate the painting to its own housing/exhibit area so that it doesn’t negatively affect all the other valuable work in the world and can maybe someday be recognized as something not all that.
