It’s true, the Mona Lisa has a twin who lives in Spain.
The Prado in Madrid has been home to what many considered a knock-off for years.
Until it came down for restoration a few years ago, no one even knew that there was scenery behind a layer of black paint.
Now, it turns out M.L. has a sister.
Or, is there something even more interesting going on?

I have my theories about how it’s possible that two of these beauties exist. Time to go finish what may be like the twentieth book on the Mona Lisa that I have read since I started researching her for Woman On The Wall.
My plan is to go hang out with her in person this Fall on a solo research trip—first stop, Paris. After that, I’m headed for the bucolic hills of Amboise to hang with da Vinci himself and see if I can discover some of my own answers about our La Gioconda.
