E.A. Bucchianeri
“(The Mona Lisa), that really is the ugliest portrait I’ve seen, the only thing that supposedly makes it famous is the mystery behind it,” Katherine admitted as she remembered her trips to the Louvre and how she shook her head at the poor tourists crowding around to see a jaundiced, eyebrow-less lady that reminded her of tight-lipped Washington on the dollar bill. Surely, they could have chosen a better portrait of the First President for their currency?”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Henri Murger
“Mida te nimetate õnneks? Kas kirge, mis paneb inimese sellisesse seisukorda nagu Jacques praegu? Näidake talle nüüd mõnda meistriteost, ja ta ei vaataks selle poolegi. Ja selleks et kas või kord veel näha oma kallimat, on ta valmis talluma Tiziani või Raffaeli maalil. Vaat minu kallim on surematu ega reeda mind iialgi. Ta elab Louvre'is ja tema nimi on Mona Lisa.”
Henri Murger, The Bohemians of the Latin Quarter: Scenes de la Vie de Boheme

Orson Scott Card
“Graff smiled a little Mona Lisa smile, if Mona Lisa had been a pudgy colonel.”
Orson Scott Card, A War of Gifts

“We seem to live in a world where you have to walk around grinning like a loon. I can’t understand all the fuss about Mona Lisa painting, everyone wondering why she’s not smiling, if she’s depressed or heartbroken. No, she was just normal!
Emotions are always extreme these days: you either have to be crying with laughter or crying in pain. No wonder water levels are rising. It’s not global warming, it’s all the tears from crying.”
Karl Pilkington

Paul Murray
“That’s quite all right,” I said. Sfumato, that was what the painters called it; a blurring or elision of the lines, the kind Leonardo had used to give his Mona Lisa her beguiling flux.”
Paul Murray

Jandy Nelson
“If someone told me I could hang out in da Vinci's studio while he painted the Mona Lisa or go up on Brian's roof with him at night - I'm on the roof”
Jandy Nelson

Elizabeth Kolbert
