The Theft of the Mona Lisa 

Presented by Barbara Evans  

Monday, February 3, 2020 at 12 Noon 


Please join us for lunch and an intriguing presentation by Barbara Evans about the art theft of the century — the Mona Lisa!  On August 21st, 1911, the Mona Lisa, painted by the famous Italian artist, Leonardo da Vinci, was stolen from the Louvre in Paris, France. Someone entered the Salon Carré; lifted it off the wall and simply walked out with it. The painting was stolen Monday morning, and baffling as it may be, it wasn't until Tuesday at noon before anyone noticed that the masterpiece was missing! 


Who stole the Mona Lisa and why? How did the authorities recover the painting? For the answers to these questions, join Barbara Evans for a richly illustrated presentation about the theft of the most famous painting in the world!  


Lunch will be followed by the presentation:  Cost: $25.00 (soup and salad).  Reservations: powellmarie38@gmail.com  The program is open for members and guests.
