Portland's Mona Lisa

The Portland Museum of Art put its own "Mona Lisa" back on display last Thursday.
This enigmatic work, officially titled "La Gioconda," is thought to be either a preparatory study for the "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo himself or a copy painted by one of his followers shortly after the creation of the original, which now resides in the Louvre Museum in Paris. The painting will be on view through the summer months. [Link]
