Painting Mona Lisa is a historical novel by Jeanne Kalogridis about a young Italian woman, Lisa Gherardini, who falls in love with Giulano Medici, the son of Lorenzo de' Medici, during the Florentine revolution and amongst all the religious upheavals during the late 15th century.

It's an intricately woven tale of betrayal, love, and loss, which unravels the mysteries surrounding Leonardo da Vinci's most famous portrait, Mona Lisa, and its links with the main character Lisa Gherardini, with added plots and a twist the reader won't see coming.
