Mona Lisa, or La Gioconda (La Joconde) 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.[1] The work   
is owned by the French government and hangs in the Musée du Louvre in Paris,     
France with the title Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del         
The painting is a half-length portrait and depicts a woman whose expression is   
often described as enigmatic. The ambiguity of the sitter's expression,           
the monumentality of the half-figure composition, and the subtle modeling of     
forms and atmospheric illusionism were novel qualities that have contributed to   
the painting's continuing fascination.
