As with Leonardo's other major mural, the  Last Supper,  technical problems doomed this  painting to failure. It deteriorated very quickly, and the painter abandoned it in 1505, long  before it was completed. The only records we have of it are a few of Leonardo's  sketches and copies done by other artists, such as this one by Rubens. Rubens's style  shows through in the copy; and thus it should not be taken as a completely accurate  representation of Leonardo's original. Even though Leonardo often designed machines  of war, he often spoke of war's beastliness; he meant the  Battle of Anghiari  to illustrate  its horrors.  Most critics agree that Leonardo began work on the  Mona Lisa  while he was still in  Florence, probably around 1505. The famous debate around the painting's subject has

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
