English text

It is the catalogue of the first European exhibit of the Earlier Mona Lisa, a masterpiece studied since 2012 only, today recognised as Leonardo’s first rendering of Mona Lisa. The book is intended to showcase the considerable body of scientific, comparative and historical research confirming the conclusion that the most important and significant sections of the painting are the work of Leonardo. As the painting has been out of the public eye for so long, the existence of an earlier version of the famous Louvre one might still be quite surprising to many art lovers.
This exhibition catalogue is meant to guide you through the essential facts and stories relating to the painting and the many people that have crossed its path over the past five centuries. It also shows the multitude of proofs that have led to the painting being attributed to the great master, and presents many of the experts who were involved in this process.
