Film Screening: "Mona Lisa Is Missing"

Mona Lisa is Missing film poster
September 27, 2014 - 2:00pm

On August 21, 1911, the Mona Lisa disappeared from her place on the wall in the Salon Carré in the Louvre. Even more surprising, this famous work of art remained missing for ​nearly two and a half years.​ It was one of the biggest news stories of its day, making headlines around the world. French police were completely baffled, and as time passed, Parisians resigned themselves to never seeing Leonardo's masterpiece again—even though the Mona Lisa and her kidnapper were hiding under their very noses.
