It has always been believed that Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa is the portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Florentine merchant Francesco del Giocondo. It was said that da Vinci worked on the painting of Lisa Gherardini for four years according to Girgio Vasari, a 16th century painter and the biographer of Leonardo da Vinci.

Now based on scientist's studies of the Mona Lisa, some lights have come out as to the methods that Leonardo da Vinci used in painting the Mona Lisa. Some discoveries include Leonardo da Vinci's usage of Sfumatu, i.e. using 30 layers of paint to get the subtlety that he wants on a painting. The scientist's discovery also reported that da Vinci was always trying out different methods to see which works best. Sometimes he uses manganese oxide like in the Mona Lisa and sometimes copper in other times he also uses glazes.
