Da Vinci painted naked Mona Lisa

Experts at the Louvre believe that Leonardo da Vinci painted a naked version of Mona Lisa.

Mona Lisa is the only woman on Earth who for 500 years never ceases to amaze, to shake, to spawn legends and versions, and to bring sensations. Today, media attention is riveted on a sketch made in charcoal and supposedly by Leonardo da Vinci. Believe me, he created it called Monna Bath. The drawing dates from the time when the great Leonardo worked - this is at the turn of the 15th century.
Experts made a sensational statement yesterday, towards evening. This, of course, is a bomb, because for 500 years people have been pondering whether da Vinci made copies and other versions of the most famous painting in the world.

Monna Bath from 1862 was in a huge collection of Renaissance art in the Conde Museum in the Palace of Chantilly, north of Paris.
“The drawing features a unique, almost magical quality,” Mathieu Deldicke said daily in an interview with Figaro.
“This is almost certainly preparatory work for oil painting,” he added.
Deldicke said that his hands and body are almost identical to Leonardo’s inscrutable masterpiece.
The drawing is almost the same size as the Mona Lisa, and the small holes punched around the figure indicate that it may have been used to transfer its shape to the canvas.

Officially, the assignment of a picture to da Vinci is a work that will take some time. "This is a very difficult job, because it is especially fragile."
But Mottin said that the experts had hoped to finally establish the artist’s identity within two years, by the time of the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci.

Even the original drawing from Chantilly was attributed to Leonardo when it was purchased by the Duke Doumal in 1862 for 7,000 francs, which at that time was a significant amount.
Mona Lisa from Da Vinci: The Uncrowned Queen of the Louvre
Currently, a work of art keeps the Guinness World Record for the highest insurance rating for a painting ($ 100,000,000, about $ 74,380,000), which it received on December 14, 1962.
A masterpiece hangs in the Louvre and has been on display there since 1797.
It was written in 1503 or 1504 in Florence, in the last years of the artist’s life and is believed to belong to Lisa Gerardi, the wife of silk merchant Francesco del Giocondo from Florence, which roughly translates the name “Madame Lisa” or “My Lady Lisa”.
It is believed that Francesco ordered a portrait to celebrate his wife’s pregnancy or to buy a house around 1502 and 1503.
After his death, Gerardi became a nun. She died in 1542 at the age of 63 and was said to have been buried near the altar of the convent of Sant'Orsola.
Mona Lisa was abducted on August 21, 1911 by a staff member of Vincenzo Perguzhi, who believed that the picture was to be returned for display in the Italian museum. After the theft, her fame increased, it became clear to everyone what she was a masterpiece.
Since then, the picture has repeatedly been vandalized and the museum placed a portrait behind the bulletproof glass.
According to Frank Zöllner, Mona Lisa, is similar to the images of the Renaissance era of the Virgin Mary, which was an unusually popular, inspiring figure for women in the Renaissance.

It is said that here this portrait of Da Vinci was inspired.
