Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci

The Mona Lisa (also known as Gioconda) is an archetypal masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance. This portrait depicts the noblewoman Lisa Gherardini. It was created between 1506–1507 by the Italian artist, Leonardo da Vinci (however, Leonardo may have continued working on it as late as 1517).

This painting is so famous that it is often described as the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, and the most parodied work of art in the world. It has been on permanent display at the Louvre in Paris since 1797.

The Mona Lisa is Leonardo da Vinci's most recognizable work. However, the genius of the Italian Renaissance created many other equally renowned works of art, including The Last Supper, Saint Jerome in the Wilderness, Lady with an Ermine, Madonna Litta, Portrait of a Musician, and many others (by the way, there are still disputes between art critics and historians about the authorship of many paintings). 

Leonardo was a pure example of a polymath. He was a painter, draughtsman, engineer, scientist, sculptor, and architect. In addition, he created many sketches and drawings, recording everything that caught his attention. All these paintings and drawings formed the basis of the unique cut of the Mona Lisa BART wooden jigsaw puzzle.
