The Prado Museum identifies one of the first copies of the Mona Lisa

22/02/2012

Curators at the National Museum of the Prado in Madrid have identified a replica of the Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo da Vinci, probably by one of his favorite disciples Andrea Salai or Francesco Melzi. The reply seems to have been painted as the Tuscan master was painting the original in his studio in Florence.

Museum experts have spent several months studying, clean away the dark varnish that covered the table (work not yet finished).

The management team of the Prado, with its director Miguel Zugaza to the head, was to present this discovery on 23 February, but a presentation two weeks ago at a conference in London has rushed things.

Soon the Prado Museum will offer more details.
