Mona Lisa Descending A Staircase by Joan Gratz won an Oscar for Best Short Animation in 1993. Gratz is an artist and animator who pioneered the technique of claypainting - working with bits of clay, she blends colours and etches fine lines to create a seamless flow of images. Mona Lisa Descending A Staircase is a dazzling example as famous paintings from history blend into each other in a seemless journey through art. It must have taken a lot of time and skill to create this masterpiece! Gratz still animates and often sits on the judging panels for animation festivals.
