MAKE-UP ARTIST JESSIE GLOVA AS MONA LISA 

Mona Lisa (La Gioconda or La Joconde) is a half-length portrait of a woman by the Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci, which has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world."[1]
The painting, thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, is in oil on a poplar panel, and is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506.[2] It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of theFrench Republic, on permanent display at the Musée du Louvre in Paris since 1797.[2] The ambiguity of the subject's expression, which is frequently described as enigmatic,[3] the monumentality of the composition, the subtle modeling of forms and the atmospheric illusionism were novel qualities that have contributed to the continuing fascination and study of the work.[2]Main article: Lisa del Giocondo

The title of the painting that is known in English as Mona Lisa stems from a description by Renaissance art historian Giorgio Vasari, who wrote "Leonardo undertook to paint, for Francesco del Giocondo, the portrait of Mona Lisa, his wife."[4][5] Mona in Italian is a polite form of address originating as ma donna —similar to Ma’amMadam, or my lady in English. This became madonna, and its contraction mona. The title of the painting, though traditionally spelled "Mona" (as used by Vasari[4]), is also commonly spelled in modern Italian as Monna Lisa, but this is rare in English.
Vasari's account of the Mona Lisa comes from his biography of Leonardo published in 1550, 31 years after the artist's death, and which has long been the best known source of information on the provenance of the work and identity of the sitter. Leonardo's assistant Salai, at his death in 1525, owned a portrait which in his personal papers was named la Gioconda, a painting bequeathed to him by Leonardo. That Leonardo painted such a work, and its date, were confirmed in 2005 when a scholar at Heidelberg University discovered a margin note in a volume written by Roman philosopher Cicero printed in 1477. The margin note had been written by Leonardo's contemporary Agostino Vespucci, and likened Leonardo to renowned Greek painter Apelles, who is mentioned in the text. The note states that Leonardo was at that time working on a painting of Lisa del Giocondo, and is dated October, 1503.[6]
