Pin's Mona Lisa - Louvre CollectionLog in to see prices
This gold metal and coloured resin pin is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's (1452-1519) iconic work, Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo, known as the Mona Lisa (the Joconde in French), ca. 1503-1519.
This portrait was doubtless started in Florence around 1503. It is thought to be of Lisa Gherardini, wife of a Florentine cloth merchant named Francesco del Giocondo - hence the alternative title, La Gioconda. However, Leonardo seems to have taken the completed portrait to France rather than giving it to the person who commissioned it. After his death, the painting entered Francis I's collection.
