The Da Vinci Museum exhibits “The Other Mona Lisas”


On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the stealing of the Louvre Mona Lisa, the Museo Ideale Leonardo Da Vinci hosts an art exhibit of the “other Mona Lisas” – most famous among them the so-called “Naked Mona Lisa” (aka Monna Vanna) attributed to one of Leonardo’s pupils, Salai, and Marcel Duchamp’s improved Mona Lisa; the one he exhibited in 1911 with a mustache and called “LHOOQ.”

The exhibition will be preceded by conferences and talks by various Leonardistas.

There will be a projection of all of the Mona Lisa versions in the museum’s Mundaneum Joconde archive – which numbers in the hundreds.
