THE MONA LISA: BEHIND THE SMILE
& AGM (12.30pm)
Paula Nuttall Monday 10 June 2019

The Mona Lisa is one of the most iconic paintings in Western art.  Painted by Leonardo in Florence in 1503, it accompanied him to France in 1517, eventually passing to the Louvre.  This lecture looks at the reasons for her fame – and incidentally, explains why she is smiling.
