It is said that the Mona Lisa is a portrait of Lisa Gioconda, a merchant's wife. The Mona Lisa In the Mona Lisa, Leonardo used a technique called sfumato, from the Latin word fumare meaning "to smoke", in which, instead of using hard contours and lines to outline subjects, he blended dark colors together to get a smoky quality in his paintings.
