Most beautiful painting
No other piece of artwork has ever prompted such fevered admiration, speculation, imitation and dissemination as Da Vinci's enigmatic Mona Lisa, also known as La Gioconda. And, as such, it would be a crime not to include it here among the world's most beautiful things. Finished in 1506, the painting now sits behind bulletproof glass - and usually a throng of slack-jawed tourists - in the Louvre, Paris.
