Did the Mona Lisa have syphilis?

What is the Mona Lisa’s mystery? She grins so cryptically under the everything except imperceptible straightforward silk shroud that covers her hair, turning her dark colored eyes as though she has recently observed somebody come into her field of vision. The interest and notoriety of this representation, started by Leonardo da Vinci in 1503, has constantly identified with the subtle identity it conveys. Giorgio Vasari in the sixteenth century guaranteed Leonardo utilized performers and jokesters to influence Lisa to grin. Walter Pater in the Victorian age thought she took after a “vampire”. Present day watchers now and again observe her face as gender ambiguous, a perception initially made by Marcel Duchamp. B1A489 B1A2908 B1A1073 B1A3493

I have another hypothesis. Maybe the Mona Lisa had syphilis.

This work of art may appear like a fantasy picture, an unbelievable vision, however it is a representation of somebody genuine. Lisa Gherardini was the spouse of a Florentine shipper called Francesco del Giocondo. Contemporary sources, incorporating a note made in 1503 by a representative in the Florentine government at the Palazzo Vecchio, put it past sensible uncertainty that she was Leonardo’s model (and not, as workmanship students of history used to guarantee, somebody posher).

Thus, she was the spouse of a shipper who lived in Florence in the time of Machiavelli, Michelangelo and the pilgrim Vespucci. Would we be able to know something else about her? The lives of ladies in Renaissance Italy are lost in the shadows. Just in Leonardo’s pictures and a modest bunch of different masterpieces do Florentine ladies of this period return to life.

However, as it happens, a modest bunch of reports have survived that give looks of Del Giocondo’s life. For example, she is recorded in the record of a Florentine religious circle as purchasing snail water (acqua di chiocciole) from its pharmacist. B1A505 B1A2924 B1A1089 B1A3509

Snail water? I thought that it was hilarious when I initially read this. Past that, I acknowledged a dull recommendation that it was utilized as a restorative or for heartburn. Actually, this is hogwash. The primary utilization of snail water in pre-present day pharmaceutical was, I have as of late found, to battle sexually transmitted infections, including syphilis.

Maybe it was the disturbing, correctional nature of this invention that influenced it to appear a sharp cure. Snail water was all the while being utilized as a part of the eighteenth century; books from the time are certain about its restorative esteem. The Pharmacopœia pauperum (1718) gives this formula: B1A513 B1A2932 B1A1097 B1A3517

Take Garden-Snails rinsed and wounded 6 Gallons, Earth-Worms washed and wounded 3 Gallons, of regular Wormwood, Ground-Ivy, and Carduus, every one Pound and half …

More herbs are added to give the awful blend, credited to Dr Richard Mead, a doctor at St Thomas’ healing facility in London, a superior flavor. Other eighteenth century formulas agree in the utilization of snail water for treating such ailments,as you can see with your own eyes at the phenomenal Old Operating Theater Museum and Herb Garret, where cases of the formula and its utilization for venereal infection are in plain view.

Is this why Del Giocondo required snail water? Provided that this is true, it is conceivable she needed it for somebody other than herself. Regardless, her recorded buy was over 10 years after she postured for Leonardo. In any case, assume she as of now had a sexually transmitted sickness in 1503. What might that say in regards to Leonardo’s most acclaimed painting? B1A521 B1A2940 B1A1104 B1A3525
B1A522 B1A2941 B1A1105 B1A3526

At the point when Del Giocondo postured for Leonardo in 1503, syphilis was shaking Europe to its center. Some said this new ailment had been brought from the new world by Columbus’ mariners in 1492. It spread like rapidly spreading fire. Could there be trace of it in Leonardo’s most popular painting? The Mona Lisa is appeared before a sloping scene through which a street snakes towards far off water and mountains. Maybe the distant mountains crosswise over wide, blue water speak to the new world – the wellspring of the Mona Lisa’s mystery.

At the point when Pater contrasted the Mona Lisa and a vampire, he was implying at something shocking and grim in Leonardo’s gem: a relationship of sex and passing. Maybe this was not just Pater’s overheated Victorian creative ability conjuring wantonness, for there are genuine shadows of mortality in this work of art. At the point when Andy Warhol made a high contrast adaptation of the Mona Lisa in 1963, he brought out exactly how much darkness underlies and undermines the golds and tans in Leonardo’s perplexing picture. Pools of dull shadow spread crosswise over del Giocondo’s face, loaning definition to her excellence, yet in addition implying at a despairing behind her half-grin. The shadows around her eyes could without much of a stretch appear to be undesirable. The abnormal greenish light that showers her could be a miasma of disorder.

On the off chance that the Mona Lisa is a representation of somebody with a sexually transmitted malady, these insights of death and sickness abruptly bode well. With respect to her half-grin, it turns into a wry affirmation that sex can influence you to wiped out. This grotesque message fits well with Sigmund Freud’s investigation of Leonardo. Freud contended in his 1910 book Leonardo da Vinci and a Memory of His Childhood that the polymath analyst who painted as well as filled scratch pad with his logical examinations was repulsed by sex. Leonardo was gay, he says, however apprehensive of intercourse with men or ladies. Rather, he “sublimated” sexuality into investigate.

Freud would most likely think it fascinating that the model of the Mona Lisa may have had syphilis. Obviously, he committed a considerable measure of errors in his book about Leonardo. This is most likely a red herring, as well. Be that as it may, t
