My favourite Art gallery and a piece of art I like.

a) If you would like to go to any Art gallery in the world which would it be and why?

I would like to visit the Louvre. The Louvre was created in 1793 and it is one of the first European museums after the Asmolian in London (1683), the Art gallery of Dresden (1744) and after the museums of Vatican (1784). Today  it is an institution in France and international cultural scene. It is very big and it is divided into seven sections. These sections document the evolution of art of ancient civilizations. I would like to go to the Louvre, because it is one of the most famous art galleries in the whole world. 

b) Which is the piece of art you like most and why?

In the Louvre there are many works of art and masterpieces like the Mona Liza (Gioconda), which I like. The Mona Liza painting is the most famous painting of Leonardo da Vinci. This piece of art is also the most famous face of a woman in the world, for which ordinary people and scholars have talked about. We don't have many details about the woman who Leonardo has painted, only that her name was Liza Gherardini (she was born in 1479)  and she was the wife  of Francesco del Goicondo from 1495.  like this portrait, because it's famous and because it's special and mysterious.

This the portrait of Mona Liza.
