Art and science were never separatedin his work - and both were not un-frequently subservient to some fancifulcaprice, some bizarre freak of originality. Curiosity and love of the uncommonruled his nature. While he was a boy, says Vasari, Leonardo modeled in terra-cottacertain heads of women smiling. When an old man, he left Mona Lisaon the easel, not quite finished,—the portrait of a subtle, shadowy, uncertainsmile. This smile, this enigmatic revelation of a movement in the soul,this seductive ripple on the surface of the human personality, was to Leonardoa symbol of the secret of the world, an image of the universal mystery. Ithaunted him all through his life, and innumerable were the attempts hemade to render by external form the magic of this fugitive and evanescentcharm.
