The Mona Lisa - Leonardo Da Vinci, 1503

The Mona Lisa was painted by the Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci. It is thought to be the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about work of art in the world! It is displayed at The Louvre museum in Paris. The Mona Lisa is famed for having eyes that follow the viewer around a room. The landscape behind her is higher on one side than the other. This tricks the viewer into thinking that her eyes are moving. Nobody knows exactly who the woman in the painting is, although it is though to be a lady called Lisa Gherardini.
