Isleworth Mona Lisa Is A Genuine Da Vinci

Art experts have confirmed that a painting dubbed the 'Isleworth Mona Lisa' is an earlier version of Leonardo da Vinci's 16th century masterpiece.

The Swiss-based Mona Lisa Foundation commissioned a number of tests, including carbon-dating of the artwork and geometry analysis, which they say prove the painting is the work of the Italian master.

The Isleworth Mona Lisa was so-called because it was discovered in a country house in the town in west London in 1913.

But some art experts doubted its authenticity when it was unveiled in Geneva last September.

1. I still think it's a clever "Leonardo Brothers" brand forgery from the 1950s.
