La Joconde, or the Mona Lisa, is arguably the most famous painting in the
Louvre. It might even be the most famous painting in the world!
La Joconde was painted by Leonardo de Vinci, an Italian
Renaissance painter, found on the second floor, room 6. The Mona Lisa is a small portrait of a Florentine noblewoman.
Her constant smile is encased behind a bullet-proof glass and will probably be surrounded by a large number of tourists.
