Mona Lisa and "her twin sister"


This month, in Spain, The Prado Museum restored a painting which was exhibited as a copy of “The Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci. They restored it as the background was covered with a thin layer of black paint which dates from the 19th century. The restoration revealed the background and landscape painted by a pupil of Da Vinci who copied his Mona Lisa at the same period. It was only restored now said the curator as the museum possesses many paintings needing cleaning and restoring.
Once restored, it should reveal details and enlighten us about some mysteries about Da Vinci’s art. It is certain that it was painted between 1503 and 1506 in Da Vinci’s workshop.
On March 26th, it will be displayed in the Museum “The Louvres” in Paris next to its original in a temporary exhibition.
