The Naked Mona Lisa - Exhibition catalogue
If everyone knows Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, who knows that the master also executed a naked Mona Lisa?
The celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the artist's death in France offer the opportunity to invite the reader to an exciting investigation into an unknown and enigmatic masterpiece, The Naked Mona Lisa of Chantilly.
Acquired in 1862 by Henri d'Orléans, Duke of Aumale, as Leonardo da Vinci's, this drawing has since given rise, more than any other work in the Condé Museum, to the most contradictory opinions and the most diverse fantasies.
How to interpret this naked Mona Lisa? Who did it? Who did it? What is Leonardo's role in the invention of this iconography in general and in Chantilly's drawing in particular? Why are there so many paintings on the subject?
