Foreign Language

Serbo-Croatian: Gay Serbia on Judith Butler, American gender-critic. I can't read it, and there are no Serbo-Croatian translation machines available, but it includes a run-down of pre-Photoshop Mona Lisa mods, ie., Duchamp, Dali, Descheidt, Bezzola, and Botero.

La Joconde se décline - lire, voir, écouter . Detailed Mona Lisa site in French. I didn't explore this enough, mostly because the scrolling arrows don't work in my browser. The first paragraphs in each section are good. That said, I think the best part is the Mona Lisa versions game. Watch one of the various versions appear; stop it when you know which artist it is.

Jocondodrioles, a wonderful French collection of Monalisanalia. Highlights include a "stretching" applet on the top page. Of the galleries, some are just simple Photoshop tricks. The Célébrocondes gallery is a good collection of famous re-dos.

Historia de una Sonrisa . Good review of its making and history, in Italian, with some subsequent versions. Translate
