Modified Mona Lisa painting

Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa was reproduced by French painter Marcel Duchamp. He added a beard and a moustache to the painting and even though it sounds weird it sold for $7,50,000 at Sotheby’s in Paris.

This painting was part of the nine works on sale by the French artist who is known as the father of conceptual art.This version that was sold was created in 1964 after the original piece that was created way back in1919.The other Duchamp pieces on sale at the auction were Boite-en-valise or ‘Box in a Suitcase.’
The work is a portable museum that featured 68 of the artist’s most famous works either reproduced or miniaturized.
