The First Mona Lisa!!
Blue blazes!! Wow! I find this quite exciting! So apparently the Mona Lisa Foundation has finally found enough evidence to prove that the "Isleworth Mona Lisa" is actually an earlier version of Mona Lisa, by Da Vinci himself! They're going to present the painting and the evidence tomorrow at Geneva. Anybody know how I can get in there by any chance? =)
In fact I have not been able to find any info about where in Geneva this is happening, or what is the title of the book that's going to be released! I think they're being pretty secretive about the whole thing... even the foundation's website is only going to go live on the 27th, so there is no info on there right now.
According to RT.com:
"The opinion of art historians is split. American scientists are skeptical, saying that it is not the first time researchers have tried to attribute the ‘Isleworth Mona Lisa’ to Leonardo. All previous attempts failed, and they do not believe this time will be any different. Moreover, the Mona Lisa is one of the most copied and imitated paintings ever."
