The “Famous Painting” is probably self explanatory.

The real Famous Painting

The “Famous Painting” is sometimes fake. Badly faked, at that! Look at those eyebrows:

Look at this forgery!

Pay attention to those eyebrows! Blathers is definitely going to notice them! Once you get the real one, it will be placed in the museum next to the other da Vinci work, the Academic Painting. Once placed, the description provided on the plaque will read:

Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci, circa 1503

Oil on poplar

The world’s most famous smile. It’s said that da Vinci kept this painting for himself until the very end…Given its power to beguile visitors all these years later, it’s easy to see why.

It is the most famous painting in the world. Period. I really don’t think there is a person alive who hasn’t heard of it or seen it in some form in their lifetime. That said, do you know what is always interesting when someone sees the actual painting in person?

“It’s so much smaller than I thought it would be!”

It’s actually only 30 in × 21 in (77cm x 53cm)! Perhaps its fame is what makes everyone think it is so much larger than it really is?

In addition to being a really famous painting, it is also the most valuable painting in the world. It actually holds the record for the highest valuation of any painting ever – in 1962 it was evaluated at $100 million! It currently sits behind bulletproof glass in the Louvre in Paris, if you wanted to go see it in person.
