A fascinating presentation and discussion of Da Vinci’s Earlier Mona Lisa in the context of the paper of the same title that was published in Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa: New Perspectives, by Jean-Pierre Isbouts (Ed).
Art historians have long debated the question why sources about the origin of the Mona Lisa portrait provide conflicting information. This monograph presents a solution for this quandary: those 16th-century sources don't agree because they are not talking about the same painting.
Jason Halter is one of a team of leading scholars and experts who have contributed to the veracity and authentication of this painting and the process has necessitated embracing technology and methods offered by science, which had not been uncovered before.
Design, Art & Architecture occupy a central position in the practice of Jason Halter & Wonder inc. Having gained his formative experience under the tutelage of one of the world's most important designers, Bruce Mau, Jason has won international acclaim for his innovative approach to design & art production. His unfettered curiosity & ability to realize ideas have made him intuit & manifest design solutions in new & novel ways.
As a Renaissance scholar, Halter spent several years teaching art & architecture of the late Gothic and early & late Renaissance in Florence and Rome, having held faculty positions with the University of Toronto & the University of British Columbia. He holds several degrees in history & architecture, & was awarded the prestigious Syracuse Fellowship during his post graduate work in Italy.
Halter was recently invited by the Mona Lisa Foundation, a consortium based in Zurich, Switzerland, to assist in the marketing and research for the ‘Earlier Mona Lisa’, 1503, by Leonardo Da Vinci. Contributing an article entitled ‘Time Travel. Pattern Recognition & the Scientific Method’, to the recent book entitled ‘Earlier Mona Lisa – New Perspectives’, published by the Fielding Graduate University, this new scholarship has established a series of insights and theories regarding this incredibly important artwork by Da Vinci, engaging new vital scientific investigation with critical cultural expertise on the work. The book was released in April 2019, ahead of an exhibition of the ‘Earlier Mona Lisa’ at Palazzo Bastogi in Florence, Italy in June of 2019, corresponding with the 500th anniversary of the passing of Leonardo da Vinci in 1519.
