Experts confirm Leonardo da Vinci painted another Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa

The Zurich institute carried out a carbon-dating test on the canvas of its painting and found that it was almost certainly manufactured between 1410 and 1455 refuting claims that it was a late 16th century copy, the Foundation added.

Supporters of the 'younger' version say the portrait was almost certainly delivered unfinished to del Giacondo before Leonardo left Italy in 1506 and took up residence in France, where he died in 1519 in a small Loire chateau.
