The Mona Lisa, also known as Mona Lisa, is an oil painting on poplar wood panel made by Leonardo da Vinci, painted around 1503-1504 and preserved in the Louvre Museum Paris.

It is the most famous portrait in history as well as one of the most famous works of art ever. The woman’s smile and eyes are mysterious, ambiguous. Leonardo painted it with the technique of “sfumato”. The woman’s gaze is fixed on the observer.  It has inspired lots of pages of criticism, literature, works of imagination.
The Mona Lisa is admired every day by about thirty thousand visitors in Paris.  
Lisa Gherardini is  “Mona” Lisa (a diminutive of “Madonna” deriving from the Latin word “Mea domina” which today would have the same meaning as “my lady”), wife of Francesco del Giocondo ( then the “Gioconda”). Leonardo painted it with the technique of “sfumato”.
