It’s entitled ‘Joconde Nue‘ and ‘Monna Vanna,’ and French scientists studying the charcoal drawing of a topless woman with a face similar to that of the Mona Lisa, the best known portrait in the world exposed at the Louvre Museum in Paris, believe it was at least partially painted by Leonardo Da Vinci.
The experts have concluded that the figure might be a nude sketch of Mona Lisa drawn just before Leonardo painted the iconic portrait.
“The hatching on the top of the drawing near the head was done by a right-handed person,” Bruno Mottin, a conservation expert explained to Le Parisien. “Leonardo drew with his left hand.”
The history of the Mona Lisa, according to the Louvre Museum, continues to be shrouded in mystery. “Among the aspects which remain unclear are the exact identity of the sitter, who commissioned the portrait, how long Leonardo worked on the painting, how long he kept it, and how it came to be in the French royal collection,” the museum details on its website.
The portrait was begun in Florence around 1503 and its thought to be of Lisa Gherardini, wife of a Florentine cloth merchant named Francesco del Giocondo – hence the alternative title, “La Gioconda.” Leonardo seems to have taken the portrait to France rather than giving it to the person who commissioned it.
