Mona Lisa, or La Gioconda is a 16th-century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel by Leonardo Da Vinci during the Italian Renaissance.
It is arguably the most famous painting in the world, and few other works of art have been subject to as much scrutiny, study, mythologizing and parody.
The painting was not well-known until the mid-19th century.
