Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa is a portrait by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci. It has been described as the most well-known work of art in the world. The portrait, which is of Italian novelwoman Lisa del Giocondo, is generally believed to have been painted from 1503 to 1506, although some historians believe da Vinci continued working on it until 1516 or 1517. It has been on display at the Louvre in Paris since 1797.
