What was the name of the painting Mona Lisa
“Mona Lisa” is the name of a famous painting. It was painted by the Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci shortly after 1500. It is one of the most valuable paintings in the world and hangs in the Museum Louvre in Paris, France.
The picture shows a smiling woman, in the background you can see a green landscape. To this day, no one knows for sure who the woman is. It is believed that it is Lisa del Giocondo. She was the wife of a wealthy merchant from Florence.
Hence the name that the picture has in Italian: “la gioconda”, the cheerful. In other languages the painting is called “Mona Lisa”, but “Monna Lisa” would actually be correct. The "Monna" is a short form of "Madonna", a noble lady. “The Lady Lisa” would be a better name for the painting - if the woman was actually called Lisa.
The painting has withstood many dangers. For example, in 1911 it was stolen. The thief wanted to sell it to a museum in Italy for a lot of money. In 1956 someone threw acid on the painting, and in the same year someone threw a stone on it. Since then, the "Mona Lisa" has been protected with a plate made of heavy bulletproof glass.
