The Mona Lisa Foundation

Two Mona Lisas


The Mona Lisa Foundation’s mission is to make Leonardo’s ‘Earlier Mona Lisa‘ known and loved in its own right, as much as the version that hangs in the Louvre Museum. The Foundation tells the remarkable story of this 500-year-old masterpiece, mobilizes art historians, scientists, forensic artists, and other experts to prove the ‘Earlier Mona Lisa’s‘ authenticity, and Leonardo’s exceptional skills. Read the book that tells the whole story. Examine the painting’s details with a magnifying glass. Compare the two portraits set next to each other. Enjoy Leonardo’s genius!
