The experts from the Center for Research and Restoration of French Museums found that da Vinci's painting was done by using layers of ekstratipis. Da Vinci applied about 30 layers for an amazing painting. Each layer only as thick as 40 micrometers, half the thickness of hair. "The technique is called sfumato," said one of the researchers, Philippe Walter. Technique is what makes da Vinci managed to create amazing illusions and shadows in his paintings. Not only painting 'Mona Lisa Smile', the team also studied six other paintings by da Vinci is entirely stored in the Louvre museum. Research done by the technical X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to study the layers of paint and chemical composition.

They carry high-tech equipment to the museum when the lid and observe the facial portrait ', which is a symbol of Sfumato. This project was developed through collaboration with the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble. "Now we can find a mixture of pigment used for each layer of da Vinci's painting," said Walter. "And, it is very, very important to understand this technique." Analysis of a number of paintings that reveal that da Vinci continues to try new methods in any of his work. In the 'Mona Lisa Smile', da Vinci's use of manganese oxide to create dimension. He also uses copper, even glaze.

Historical records reveal, 'Mona Lisa Smile' is a painting of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo, a merchant from Florence. Da Vinci started painting it in 1503. Giorgio Vasari, the 16th century painter and biographer da Vinci and other artists, wrote that da Vinci painting was perfect for 4 years. to Italy to check in on some mysterious artwork.. According to an Italian researcher, the key to solving the enigmas of Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting the Mona Lisa lies in her eyes. This is just the latest theory about a painting that has never ceased to intrigue scholars, art lovers and casual viewers alike. Stefania Romano is a member of the National Committee for the Valorisation of Cultural Heritage. She said she and a group of historians had found the letter "S" in the woman's left eye, which might refer to a woman in the Sforza dynasty that ruled Milan, the letter "L" in her right eye, which might refer for Leonardo, and the number "72" under the arched bridge in the backdrop of the painting. Stefania Romano said, "In regard to the number 72 present under the arch of the bridge depicted by Leonardo on the right side of the Mona Lisa's painting, it is possible to notice it with the naked eye or with a simple magnifying glass. We believe it's the number 72." But some Leonardo scholars have expressed doubt over the new findings, or their significance, with one calling them "unsubstantial". Tradition holds that the Mona Lisa is a painting of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Florentine merchant Francesco del Giocondo, and that Leonardo started painting it in 1503.
