What would you like to do?
Leonardo da vinci spent at least 4 years to paint it from 1503-1507 and left it undone and then he spent another 3 year painting and finished it before he died 1519 so he spen…t 7 years painting 'Mona Lisa'.
only a couple of months. it took 4 years to paint the entire thing
There is no record of such a detail.
Because the lips and eyes are the most important part of the whole painting Answer 2: Who says it took 12 years? He never did take 12 years. :-L
He did not finish the Mona Lisa..... I think he passed away before that happend.
This is a story not founded on known facts.
I do not think her face has anything to do with the golden ratio.
Nobody knows.We should need diaries, where artists wrote 'today I painted an eye, it took me 30 minutes'. Yesterday a pair OS shoes took me 1 hr 38 minutes'. I will tell you… a secret: Artists paint, they do not make that kind of diaries.
no, they are not stitched shut.
12 years altogether
it took 12 years
It took 10 years to paint the Mona Lisa's lips
It took him around three years to finish it(1503-1506), I found this off the question "What were Leonardo da Vinci's Accomplishments"
About 10 years
no, it took him mere hours to complete her lips which resulted in a very beutiful masterpiece.
