The Mona Lisa is a portrait painted by Leonardo Da Vinci in the early 1500s. It’s one of the most famous paintings in the world and has been on display in the Louvre in Paris since 1797. It’s often said to be a masterpiece, a classic of the Italian Renaissance.
But classics are overrated.
The thing is, it’s pretty boring, right? The colors are dull. Her whole vibe is just… mid. You’re probably yawning now, and we get it. You’re not alone!
