Art and Beauty! Love and Happiness!? is the fourth episode in Elite Beat Agents. The stage song is "I Was Born To Love You", originally by Freddie Mercury/Queen, and covered in-game by Paul Vician.
In 15th century Florence, Leonardo Da Vinci (known as "Leo") is painting portraits of people, but is unsatisfied with his work, wanting to know what "true" art and beauty are. He sees Mona Lisa passing by and immediately becomes infatuated with her. However, she refuses to let him paint her, but Leo is unfazed, continuing to make sketches of her until she finally punches him in anger. The shocked Leo cries for help soon afterwards.
Mona wants to fly, so Leo decided to create a flying machine. If the Elite-O-Meter increases, Leo will go crazy with the sketches. If it goes down, Leo will simply groan in frustration. At the end of the phase, Leo will take Mona to see the Tower of Pisa, which Mona states is 'exhilarating' with Leo agreeing. If not, Leo's flying machine will crash into the tower, causing it to lean and causing many civilians to panic.
Mona gets chased by bulls so Leo tries helping her out by painting. If the Elite-O-Meter increases, Leo will go crazy with painting. If it goes down, Leo will groan. At the end of the phase, Leo will show the bulls of painting of a female anthropomorphic bull, which catches the bulls attention, allowing him to save Lisa. If not, Leo will show the bulls a poorly-drawn portrait of a bull, causing them to run into Leo and Mona.
Leo and Mona arrive at a brick wall. If the Elite-O-Meter increases, Leo will paint the walls while watching Mona.
- Best Ending: If the player passed all of the first four phases, Leo will spend a month working on a portrait of Lisa, to which, she says is 'beautiful' and gives him a kiss, much to his delight.
- Poor Ending: If the player failed all of the first four phases, Leo will spend a month working on a portrait of Lisa. She thinks it's garbage and snaps it in half, much to his dismay.
- Leonardo Da Vinci ("Leo"), age 27
- Mona Lisa
- While the good ending of this stage has Leo and Mona Lisa getting married, the real-life Mona Lisa - Lisa del Giocondo - was married to another man and never had any sort of romantic relationship with Da Vinci.
