Mona Lisa

One of the worlds most famous and controversial oil paintings, "The Mona Lisa," was created by Leonardo da Vinci. In his painting there is a portrait of a woman sitting calmly with a gentle grin facing the viewer. The overall emotion that I believe is being expressed is mysterious because of the obscured background.  The dark paint colors foreshadow a sad mood, however this contradicts her slight smile.
