Did you know?

Every year, about 6 million people visit the Musée du Louvre in Paris to see Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous portrait, Mona Lisa. An oil painting on poplar wood, the portrait was started by Da Vinci in 1503 and took approximately four years to complete, although some believe that he continued working on it well after that.

For centuries afterward, his talent and ingenuity sparked many scholarly debates and a multitude of theories in an effort to uncover the mysteries behind the Mona Lisa. The two biggest mysteries are her identity and the nature of her “enigmatic” smile. Tune in next month as we explore these two “mysteries”.
