Do you think that is a little odd? Like, oh, look what we found! The second most important piece of art in the world. It seems as if the earliest known copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa was found at Spain’s Prado Museum, apparently created by one of da Vinci’s apprentices as the master created the original. As ArtDaily notes, “The copy has been part of the Prado collection for years and displayed occasionally but no one paid much attention to it because around the woman in the Mona Lisa was a stark black background, not the pretty landscape seen in the original.”
Let’s be honest… this would go for over $1bn at auction, right?
