The Art Society

Nicole Mezey : The Woman who Ate her Husband: The ‘Mona Lisa’ and the Art of Leonardo

At  the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governos Parade. 

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 

The ‘Mona Lisa’ is both mesmerising and tantalising. So much about it is mysterious, but one thing is clear: in a life studded with unfinished projects, this was one which Leonardo not only completed, but kept with him until his death, because in it he addressed and realised so many of the themes which are at the core of his work. This lecture examines the Mona Lisa itself but also uses it to explore and understand the genius of Leonardo da Vinci.
