Mona Lisa .... In the News

It's good to see so much attention being paid to this iconic painting in the news lately.  Question is, do we think there is a second, earlier Mona Lisa.  10 to 15 years younger.  

We've listened to the experts.  We've done our own research.  Do we think this is an earlier work?

No.  da Vinci was a fiddler.  Always trying something new and changing it.  No evidence of this on the earlier work.  Our conclusion is that this is an earlier work - done by a "student" of da Vinca's.

Just our opinion.

Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci, ca. 1503–1519
Oil on poplar, 77 cm × 53 cm, Musée du Louvre, Paris

Have a wonderful Friday,
