Is it odd that I like the painting by the apprentice better than the painting by the master?

This. Have they never seen the original before?

The Mona Lisa was proven by computer analysis to be Leonardo Da Vinci drawing himself as a woman. Not surprising considering that he was a total poofter. A flaming, fabulous poofter. Cool as all heck. Smart as heck too. And in Florence in those days, there wasn't anything un-Christian about being a poofter.

The modern ideas about marriage and gays is just that, MODERN.

Modern "family values" as Christians profess 'were taught by Jesus himself' didn't actually exist as a societal norm until the founding of the USA, when the Puritans came here. Such ideas were not common in Europe.

And what Judaism taught (which is what Jesus was, a JEW) is quite different.

Modern 'family values' don't come from Christ. They come from Puritanism and all its offshoots.

Canton: Ambivalence: Is it odd that I like the painting by the apprentice better than the painting by the master?

Nope. Mona Lisa's twin does look younger...

I'ts not just the colors. I like the facial dimensions of the copy better. it looks more authentic.

FTFA: The copy had been on display at the Madrid art museum for years without experts being aware of its importance.

Experts are stupid.
