A genius immortalized her. A French king paid a fortune for her. An emperor coveted her. Every year more than 9 million visitors trek to view her portrait in the Louvre. Yet while everyone recognizes her smile, hardly anyone knows her story. This book is a blend of biography, history, and memoir. It is a book of discovery about the world's most recognized face, most revered artist, and most praised and parodied painting - the Mona Lisa.
