Done in the form of sketching, Da Vinci portraits artwork are beautiful even within the hurried sketched pieces. “Detail of the Angel, from The Virgin of the Rocks” is light and airy, and evokes a feeling of peace. Depicting the Angel that brought the good news to the Virgin Mary, it is an angelic piece that offers an artistic perspective on a holy moment.
One of the most iconic and famous works of art the world has ever known, the “Mona Lisa, c.1503-6” is the crown jewel of Da Vinci’s entire artistic career. With her slight smile and penetrating eyes, the Mona Lisa is a classic portrait that still startles and wows art lovers today. “Self Portrait” by Da Vinci is a portrait of himself later in life. Done in dark colors and shadowed, it is a modest portrait for a modest artist.
