Discovery reports that a painting, “hidden for almost a century within the wood wall of a private library, shows a portrait of a half-naked woman with clear links to the famous (and clothed) Mona Lisa.”

While there is not credible evidence that the woman is the famous Mona Lisa, “there is little doubt it has parallels with the painting hanging at the Louvre museum in Paris.”

The newly revealed painting is currently exhibited at the Museo Ideale in Vinci.

According to a Alessandro Vezzosi, the director of the museum, “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.”
