Cleaning Mona Lisa

Hey everyone,

I'm always fascinated how people use their Nikons in furtherance of their careers. As far as I can tell, I'm the only art historian on this forum who uses their camera to photograph art for their students.

I recently wrote this essay for students on cleaning Mona Lisa:

As she stands today, Mona Lisa is an extremely "dirty" painting. In this article, I "clean" many paintings to get to the heart of what "Mona Lisa" once looked like. The pictures for this essay were taken with the d100 (which amazingly still holds up), d2h, and d700.

While I discuss in depth the state of Mona Lisa--and why she was so revolutionary in her own day, here is an example of one of the images:

(PS: oh, and I know that these images are not copyrightable; I put that on there to deter image borrowing.)

Best,
