The Mona Lisa
The Mona Lisa is the famous 16th-century portrait by Leonardo da Vinci. Her mysterious smile has beguiled generations of viewers, but the true identity of this beauty remains unknown, despite intensive research by art historians. Many believe the Mona Lisa to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini Giocondo, the wife of a wealthy Florentine merchant, Francesco del Giocondo, hence its name in Italian, "La Gioconda". Others have suggested the subject was a mistress of da Vinci, or even a self-portrait, with da Vinci imagining himself as a woman.
Leonardo's painting is famous among artist scholars for its innovative techniques, including sfumato (shown in the painting's distinctive hazy, soft-focus effect) and chiaroscuro (the complex interplay of light and shadow).

The Mona Lisa at the Prado in Madrid was thought to be just another fine copy, with added eyebrows and an odd black background. But curators at Spain's national art museum  announced a startling discovery: the painting was actually executed by an artist in Leonardo da Vinci's workshop at the same time as the original. Conservators believe the artist could be Francesco Melzi, one of Leonardo's favorite pupils.
