My French Find ~ A bit of French Art Trivia

Leonardo DaVinci began painting the Mona Lisa in 1503. He continued to work on it after he emigrated to France in 1516 and is believed to have finished it just before he died three years later.  The painting has remained in France ever since and is owned by the state. It once hung in Napoleon's bedroom.
