La Gioconda is probably the most famous paint of Leonardo da Vinci. It was paainted using a method called sfumato. The paint is currently at the Louvre museum. In the portrait appears a woman sitting in an armchair. She doesn´t have eyebrows and eyelashes. It was originally painted with eyelashes and with better visible eyebrows, but that these had gradually disappeared over time, perhaps as a result of overcleaning. Some scientists think that the woman was pregnant because of the position of her arms. The landscape of the left is different of the lanscape of the right. However both landscapes are the town of Bobbio.
