I’m glad I found you. I said this to my wife - without Mirthy, my life would be far less richer than it is now.

Event Description

How well do you know the world's most famous painting? It was stolen in 1911 and rocketed to world stardom. But there is more to the story, including the implication of Pablo Picasso in the theft, a wild goose chase tricking the Nazis and a tea cup wielding maniac attacking it. This talk will provide a deep look at the many fascinating stories behind Leonardo's Mona Lisa.
