Mona Lisa re-dated

The date of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa has been changed from 1503-6 to 1503-19.

The re-dating, according to sources, comes as a result of Louvre's recent scientific work on some of Leonardo's paintings. It has been detected that the artist's Virgin and Child with St Anne and the Prado's copy of Mona Lisa were probably worked on shortly before his death in France in 1519.
  This suggests that the artist completed what would later be the world's most valued art piece, in 16 years.
