The nude Mona Lisa

Published on June 14th, 2009 | by Admin


Leonardo da Vinci may have painted his famous Mona Lisa in a number of ways, including nude.

The lady in the portrait does not exactly resemble the original Mona Lisa, but there is little doubt it has parallels with the painting hanging at the Louvre museum in Paris.

“The frontal look, the position of the hands, the spatial conception of the landscape, with columns at the sides, show a clear link with the Mona Lisa’s iconographic theme,” Alessandro Vezzosi, director of the museum, told Discovery News.
