"Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci

Submitted by BAAC

The Mona Lisa, one of da Vinci’s best known works, was painted in the early 1500s in Florence on poplar panels. This Renaissance painting revolutionized the portrait and is among the most recreated pieces of artwork in history. The painting now resides in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. 

Representing the Batesville Area Arts Council, Mary Smith poses as the famous Mona Lisa. The BAAC has been a staple of Batesville since 1998, funneling over $1,000,000 into the six area schools through the Arts in Education program, and providing art and programming to bring the arts to our community at large.
