Léonard de Vinci
La Joconde

Author(s): Cécile  Scailliérez

€ 9.70 tax included

The Mona Lisa is surely the most famous image in the world. But by dint of being seen here, there and everywhere, and being used by all kinds of media for all sorts of reasons, the image gradually eclipsed the painting. Rather than yet another, new look, the time had come to take a ‘truer’ look at this work, and finally pit the myth against reality. Written for all those who are still wondering what all the fuss is about, this book aims to do justice to the portrait of Lisa del Giocondo.
