The Mona Lisa

The "Mona Lisa" (also known as La Giaconda) is a 16th-century portrait by Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, and is one of the best-known artworks of all time.

The painting's fame increased after its theft from the Louvre on August 21st, 1911.[1] Additionally the expression of the figure sitting for the portrait is often described as enigmatic, leading to a great deal of speculation.
