Question 3: Why is Mona Lisa’s smile so mysterious?

Question 4: What does the narrator say about the playing of music and the Mona Lisa?
Answer: There is a story that Leonardo had musicians play while he was painting Mona Lisa so that she would not tire of sitting quietly as a model. The expression of her eyes shows us that she is listening. And now, if we look at her beautiful hands and think of them in connection with her face, we feel the expression more intensely. The right hand rests very lightly on the left. The middle finger has no support at all. we feel that it is following the music with a light beat.
Question 5: What can we note in Renoir’s painting of his son if we look at it closely?
Answer: If we look at it closely, we can follow a rounded line leading from the child’s forehead through his shoulder and elbow, hand and brush, to his canvas. In this rounded line, Renoir wanted to show us how thoughtful Coco was when he was painting, how he put on canvas only what he had first figured out in his mind.
