Mona Lisa True Story World Famous Paint

Mona Lisa True Story World Famous Paint


Exploring the life of the subject of the world's most famous image, Mona Lisa: The People and the Painting cuts through the myths and speculation to show that Leonardo da Vinci's portrait is a product of reality.

Starting from the beginning, this book takes the reader on a journey through the artist's early life, meeting previously undiscovered members of his immediate family, alongside an in-depth look at Lisa's intriguing story.

From Renaissance love poetry and verses specifically dedicated to Leonardo, to recent scientific examinations of the painting, this compendium discovers how the portrait metamorphosed into a 'universal picture' that became the prime vehicle for the master's prodigious knowledge of the human and natural worlds.
