Let's play a game.
Think of a famous painting.
Guess what?
You just thought of me.
Today, I'm the world's most renowned  work of art,
but it wasn't always this way.
My story is full of surprises,
and it all began in a studio in Florence.
Well, here's the master himself, Leonardo da Vinci.
He worked on me on and off for a few years
towards the end of his career.
- You're a minor work, my dear,
some interesting shading, nothing more.
- We'll just see about that.
Over the next 300 years, I hung quietly in French palaces
and royal bathrooms.
The things I've seen.
- [Napoleon] I want you.
- Until finally I was noticed by a man who had
already made quite a name for himself.
When Napoleon chose me to hang on his bedroom wall,
people took notice.
- I look forward to sleeping with you, my cherie.
- After he had his whole exile   from France thing,
they tossed me on a wall at The Louvre.
But at this point, I was still
just another Renaissance portrait.
Until one night.
- Bella.
- I was stolen!
It was pandemonium.
Paris was in an uproar.
The police hauled people in left and right.
The hysteria hit a fever pitch
when the police suspected and interrogated
one of the most famous artists in the world, Pablo Picasso.
But Picasso was innocent.
The thief turned out to be an Italian carpenter.
He was caught in Florence.
- Mama mia.
- And I returned to The Louvre.
From that day forward, I became the darling
of the art world.
Everyone wanted to see Napoleon's da Vinci painting
Picasso was suspected of stealing.
Soon, tourists crowded in and most people forgot
why I was famous in the first place.
That might raise some eyebrows, but not mine
since I don't have any.
Oh, you didn't notice I don't have any eyebrows?
I told you, I'm full of surprises.

影片簡介

展開內容
全世界最知名的一幅畫應該就是蒙娜麗莎了,為什麼乍看下不起眼又那麼小 (該幅畫長寬只有 77 x 53 公分而已) ,又不受原畫家達文西注重的一幅畫,卻能讓全世界觀光客蜂擁而至、爭相打卡呢?讓我們來了解吧!

1renowned 0:08
「有名氣的」除了大家耳熟的 famous 之外,如果是要強調不只是「有名」,更是「有聲望的」,可以用 renowned 這個字喔!
The Louvre is renowned for its impressive collection of Renaissance artworks.
羅浮宮因其為數龐大的文藝復興作品聞名。


如果有名氣的原因是負面的,這時使用的單字會是 notorious
Fast fashion labels are notorious for ripping off young, independent designers and haute couture designs alike.
快速時尚品牌因剽竊年輕獨立設計師以及高級服飾設計作品而惡名昭彰。

2master0:25
master 一般指的就是「某個領域的大師」。
Pierre Hermé, master patissier, had been praised as "the Picasso of pastry."
糕餅大師皮埃爾・艾爾梅被譽為「甜點界中的畢卡索」。


master 也可以當動詞用,意指「精通、掌握」。
Russian is perhaps the most difficult foreign language to master for a native Chinese speaker.
對於中文母語者而言,最難精通的外語或許是俄文。


3exile 0:58
exile 作為名詞是「流放」的意思。
The Dalai Lama has been living in exile in India since 1959.
達賴・喇嘛自 1959 年起流亡於印度。


如果是在國外「遣返」或「驅逐出境」,則是 deport
He was forcefully deported after he had failed to renew his visa and had thus overstayed in the country for three months.
他因為無法順利申請簽證延長,導致逾期居留三個月而被強硬地驅逐出境。

4interrogated1:25
interrogate 通常指執法人員和法官的「審問」或「質問」。
The police interrogated the suspect for a while before they let him go.
警方質問了嫌疑犯好一陣字才放他走。


當然,如同中文的拷問,interrogate 也有較幽默反諷的用法。
Interrogating your child leads to the opposite of effective communication.
拷問自己的小孩不但無助於親子溝通,反而會造成反效果。


5darling1:42
darling 在這裡是「寵兒」的意思,是獲得圈內一致的喜愛、一致好評的那種。
Simon Porte Jacquemus is the latest darling of the Paris fashion scene.
西蒙・波特・雅克慕斯是當前巴黎時尚界的寵兒。


當然大家都知道 darling 是對愛人的暱稱,不過這種用法現今可能有點太老派了,而顯得突兀,現在年輕人都比較習慣用 babe。
Darling, will you please pass the pepper?
親愛的,可以把胡椒罐給我嗎?


至於為什麼這幅畫叫蒙娜麗莎 (Mona Lisa) 呢?因為畫中的女性名為 Lisa Gheradini,而 Mona Lisa 是 Ma donna Lisa (My Lady Lisa) 的縮寫。在羅浮宮這幅畫其實叫做 La Joconde ,是不是跟 Mona Lisa 差很多啊?希望大家看完這部影片後都對麗莎夫人有更深的了解!
