Mona Lisa by Andy Warhol

For 500 years Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa has been one of the most recognizable paintings in the world. Since her creation in 1503, she has become the ultimate Pop icon, so it is unsurprising that in 1963—while on a wildly successful tour of the United States—Mona Lisa caught the attention of Andy Warhol, the ultimate chronicler of popular culture. Inspired as much by the ubiquitous nature of the image as its historical importance, Warhol produced a series of seven canvases using Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting as his source.
