Leonardo da Vinci's Nude Mona Lisa

Did Leonardo da Vinci paint a nude version of the Mona Lisa? Maybe so, according to a newly revealed painting, hidden for a century within the walls of a private library:

The lady in the portrait does not exactly resemble the original Mona Lisa, but there is little doubt it has parallels with the painting hanging at the Louvre museum in Paris.

"The frontal look, the position of the hands, the spatial conception of the landscape, with columns at the sides, show a clear link with the Mona Lisa's iconographic theme," Alessandro Vezzosi, director of the museum, told Discovery News.

There are like 20 different paintings that all resemble the mona lisa, and even some nude ones. This was definitely inspired by the mona lisa and da vinci. If it's not him it's gotta be from someone close to him. It looks like it has his "Sfumato" technique, which i describe in my book/site. Itsjustlife.com If you know how to look at it right and control the dilation of your eyes, the painting will change. I wish i had a better quality scan of this painting though to be sure.
