The Mona Lisa Painting, the world's most famous piece of art, was a portrait of a man, according to a Leonardo Da Vinci expert.
Most art historians have generally been in agreement that the Mona Lisa painting was a portrait of a silk merchant's wife named 'Lisa Gheradini', however, 'Silvano Vincetti', chairman of the Italian national committee for cultural heritage, says otherwise, reports Sky News.Vincetti claims that the subject of the painting was a man, and possibly Da Vinci's lover. He insists that the mysterious subject of the historic piece of art is a young man named 'Gian Giacomo Caprotti', also known as 'Salai'. Gian and Da Vinci were said to have worked together for almost 25 years and it is understood that 'Salai' was the subject of numerous other works by the legendary artist. Vincetti specifically refers to the subject's nose and the mouth, claiming that they are very similar to Salai's in the paintings 'St John the Baptist' and 'The Angel Incarnate'. The expert also claims that forensic evidence backs up his claims, noting, "Close examination of a high-quality digital copy of the portrait had revealed an L for Leonardo and an S for Salai".
Despite Vincetti's apparent discovery, experts at the Louvre say they checked the work in 2004 and 2009, insisting, "No inscriptions, letters or numbers, were discovered during the tests".
