Every year, over eight million people from all over the world flock to the Louvre for the opportunity to gaze upon Leonardo da Vincis beguiling Renaissance masterpiece, La Gioconda, more popularly known as Mona Lisa. What is it about this iconic portrait that continues to mesmerise us? For centuries, academics have examined all facets of the famous artworks creation, influence, mythology, heritage, and mystique. But the most fascinating aspect of Mona Lisa is the frequency with which she has been reinterpreted, parodied, appropriated, and imitated by other artists. No other painting in history has been reproduced as often and yet there has never before been published a comprehensive collection of Mona Lisa recreations. This oversight has finally been rectified by this art book with a difference. Equally amusing, inspiring and provocative, it is a must for anyone whos fallen under the mysterious spell of those famous eyes.
