Leonardo da Vinci's the world's most famous portrait of Mona Liza or La Joconde or La Gioconda (1503-1505).Current location Louvre Museum. Paris.
According to ' The Genius ' exhibition '... Pascal Cotte was authorised to take the picture down, take it off its frame and photograph it in an incredibly precise resolusion- 240 million pixels-using a contraption that he invented, the multispectral camer. From there he succeeded in produsing images of the original art piece with details invisible to the naked eye. Then he carried out an indepth analysis on the Mona Lisa. ...500 years later the Mona Liza has not yet ceased to amaze us. The smile and the mysterious eyes of a young Italian girl called Liza del Giocondo will always fascinate. It was apparently Leonardo da Vinci's favourite work and he carried it everywhere he went, even on longer journeys.
