THE NUDE MONA LISA EXHIBITION

The visitors at the Chantilly Arts & Elegance can also see the exhibition “The nude Mona Lisa” which will begin the same day: it is a celebration for the 500th anniversary of Leonardo’s death.

The heart of the exhibition will be dedicated to the prestigious Chantilly sketch or cartoon representing the Nude Mona Lisa, which was purchased by the Duc d’Aumale in 1862. Designed after the Mona Lisa, this masterpiece was the physical symbol both of a play between pictorial genres and of a polysemy characteristic of Leonardo’s fertile mind. The Italian master spent a lot of time perfecting his work.

The exhibition will also showcase the laboratory exams that were conducted along with the study of the Chantilly masterpiece.

Free access.
