MVL Giveaway

The Spanish Mona Lisa
Portrait of a Lady
Julio Romero de Torres
I recently discovered this painting done sometime between 1925 and 1930 by a Spanish 
painter by the name of Julio Romero de Torres. Isn't she beautiful?
You can see her in person right now because she's in an exposition in San Diego.
I think she is prettier than the REAL Mona Lisa by FAR.
But don't you think Julio must have been influenced by the daVinci one?
The Mona Lisa
Leonardo da Vinci
I have to say I never really saw what was so appealing about the Mona Lisa. 
Yes, she is iconic...but she isn't very pretty.

I think the Mona Lisa is a beautiful work of art, but I agree, she's not very pretty. The woman in the Spanish painting is. To each his own.

Would love to win!
