The Prado Museum discovers earliest copy of 'Mona Lisa'
The Prado Museum in Madrid has discovered the earliest copy of Leonardo
da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” which it believes was painted by one of his key
pupils in the same studio at the same time as the original.The find,
which has been called “stunning” by art historians, was made as
restorers were carrying out conservation work. The restored painting
will give experts new insights into the most famous work of art as it
shows how the subject would have actually looked at the time.
