= by John Argo (Jean-Thomas Cullen) =

Mona Lisa Novel (Nocturne in Paris) released in 2018 reveals for the first time in 500 years the reason why Leonardo Da Vinci painted the world's most famous portrait—the Mona Lisa, hanging in the Louvre. It occupies a special place in the museum, where it is insured for nearly one billion Euros, making it the most famous and expensive art work in history. It is also the most mysterious work of art, over which scholars have puzzled and debated for half a millennium. Now readers will learn from author John Argo (Jean-Thomas Cullen) the answers to all of the questions commonly asked.

Questions, Questions. Why did Leonardo paint her portrait? Who was Lisa Gherardini? Why did Leonardo obsess over this work unlike any of his others? You'll learn the answers to questions you may not have thought to ask, like why does that gloomy landscape behind her resemble Leonardo's description of the moon (as he thought it must be, although we know better today—no bushes, no flowing water, no winding paths).
