Question 22

X is known as ‘La Gioconda’. It is a portrait painted in oil during the Italian Renaissance. The work is currently owned by the government of France and is on display at the Louvre in Paris. X is named for Lisa del Giocondo, a member of the Gherardini family of Florence and Tuscany and the wife of wealthy Florentine silk merchant Francesco del Giocondo. The painting was commissioned for their new home and to celebrate the birth of their second son, Andrea. Name X?
