The Man Who Stole The Mona Lisa

art is everywhere                                                   

I watched The Man Who Stole The Mona Lisa  on Netflix Sunday night and was going to recommend it, when lo!  Here it is on You Tube. 

When Italian handyman Vincenzo Peruggia stole the Mona Lisa from the Louvre in 1911, he never could have guessed her absence would be the very thing that made her the most recognizable painting on the planet. (CNN)

Suddenly images of the artwork were splashed across international newspapers, as the two-year police hunt hit dead-end after dead-end. While the Mona was well known, it was far from being as recognizable as it is today; the Washington Post for instance printed this picture.

It wasn't until December 1913 -- exactly 100 years ago next month -- that Peruggia was finally caught and the Mona Lisa recovered, becoming the best known painting in a time before we shared images on TV, internet, and phones.

Odds that you'll like this movie are 81:3.  You're welcome.

"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation:
The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as the billowing smoke of financial scandal clouds herself and her family."

I watched "The Art of the Steal" with Kurt Russell. Good flick. Had a tie-in to the Mona being stolen. Netflix.

I don't understand how to persevere paint, but I think the Prado version is better. Mona is kind of flirty/sexy there, whereas she looks more like George Washington in the original. Bleah.
