The Louvre in Paris has Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. In Florence, the Uffizi has Botticellli’s The Birth of Venus. And the Prado Museum in Madrid has Goya’s The Naked Maja. Not to be outdone, the Palace of Fine Arts has its own Lovely Ladies — the maiden statues that grace the Palace itself, and the 13 ladies, photographed in vintage costume, whose early gifts to our campaign will help restore this beloved landmark.
