That would be a very good question. No, they do not have eyebrows. Leonardo Da Vinci was very different and creative when it came to his paintings. He created his own style of painting with the famous way he used light in his portraits. Just like in the "Mona Lisa". In this painting the drawing is so perfectly drawn that because of the shadows in the painting and the light, there are no eyebrows. Da Vinci doesnt use eyebrows in his paintings. He felt as if without them it would be more of a natural portrait. And how right he was, his drawings have become to famous today! Additional answer: The above is one way of looking at the question. One could also note that there were contemporary writings about the 'Mona Lisa' which praised how natural the eyebrows were. And some scholars believe the eyebrows have been erased by unprofessional cleaning.
