About Da Vinci Jacquard Weave Pillows – Musart on Pillows – Mona Lisa
This Da Vinci Jacquard Weave Pillow is part of our original collection, Musart on Pillows. Jacquard weaving consists of the interweaving of two kinds of yarn: warp threads (10,500 threads in 100% cotton) and weft threads (cotton, wool, linen). This extremely precise technique makes it possible to interweave around 80 threads / cm². This technique results in obtaining a point of great finesse, it also allows to use a multitude of colors. This cover pillow represent one of Leonardo Da Vinci most famous paintings: the Mona Lisa.
Currently, on display at the Louvre Museum, Leonardo’sMona Lisa is the world’s most famous portrait and one of the History of Art’s most popular works, identified by the art historian Giorgio Vasari as Lisa di Antonio Maria Gherardini, wife of a wealthy Florentine merchant, Francesco del Giocondo. The uniqueness of Leonardo’s Mona Lisa resides in the lack of jewelry or lavish attributes that would identify the sitter as an aristocratic woman. Although Renaissance etiquette dictated women must never look directly into a man’s eye, Leonardo masterfully empowers the sitter with a self-assuring gaze immediately directed at the viewer. The Mona Lisa is represented sitting at a logia, in front of a mysterious uninhabited landscape through which the viewer evidences Leonardo’s fascination with atmospheric perspective and his traditional use of sfumato which influenced artists for generations after him.
