The Prado Museum in Madrid has restored a replica of the Mona Lisa painted by one of Leonardo da Vinci’s apprentices. It’s exhibited from past week with big success.

We think it’s even better than the original since the original has suffered so many bad restorations than lady’s eyelashes and eyebrows have disappeared in one of the cleanings of surface coating and also, the background has lost details.

Artists in the Renaissance painted with transparent layers of paint. Each layer added specific colors, not only protection, and restorations have damaged more than one master piece.

For example: if you have a yellow layer and on it, a blue layer, the result is green, but if the restorer take out the blue one, you change the painting.

Everything is always changing!
