The painting was one of the first portraits to depict the sitter in front of an imaginary landscape, and Leonardo was one of the first painters to use the toughest drawing technique of all the time. The painting is so famous as there are so many(5) hypotheses about it. What attracts me the most about this painting is Mona Lisa’s charming smile.
