Robonardo da Liefeld was yet another ancestor in Rob Liefeld’s family tree. He was another Italian Renaissance artist who spurned formal education and clung to the artistic ideas from the Middle Ages. He liked the strong outlines, and he especially liked the denial of the human form. Regrettably, artists during the Renaissance were held to the highest standards and if they couldn’t recreate reality on canvas they were considered bad at their trade.
Even though Robonardo da Liefeld had a chance to paint Mona Lisa, he was never accepted by his peers.
