Copy of the world-famous painting Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci is to be sold with an estimated price of €300,000 or $365,645. The said copy is to be auctioned at Christie’s in Paris, France. Christie’s said in an official statement: “This work and its history illustrate the fascination that the Mona Lisa and the aura of Leonardo da Vinci have always held.” The Mona Lisa copy is otherwise known as Mona Lisa Hekking, named after its ex-owner and one of da Vinci’s followers Raymond Hekking. It was painted in the 17th century after Hekking acquired the original in the 1950s from an art dealer in Nice, Italy.

Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa—presumed to have been painted in the 16th century—is considered the most famous painting in the world. Its theft from the Louvre Museum in Paris became international news. It was recovered in 1913 from Florence, Italy when Vincenzo Peruggia, an employee of the Louvre Museum and the painting’s thief, attempted to sell it to an antiques dealer in the city.
