The European painting masterpieces from the halls of the Louvre

At the Louvre, 11,900 paintings constitute the richest collection of paintings in the world, second only to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, 6,000 canvases are constantly on display and others kept in storage.
On the northwest wall of the "Salle des États" (Hall of States), protected by a 5 cm Plexiglas, The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci is undoubtedly the most enjoyed painting in the Louvre.
The painting on a small size wooden board has charmed and enchanted the audience with the enigmatic smile, with those slightly ambiguous traits, with that name that might be an anagram, with that certain aura of mystery surrounding the author and his existential and religious beliefs, with the vicissitudes of a theft.
