THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the most expensive painting ever stolen?
With a value estimated in the
hundreds of millions of dollars, the Mona Lisa is the world's most expensive
painting ever stolen.
August 21, 1911 ex Louvre employee Vincenzo Peruggia, who went by the name
Leonardo Vincenzo, walked into an empty room, took the Mona Lisa off the wall,
removed it from it's case in a stairwell and disappeared.
So impossible was the theft of the Mona Lisa that it
was not discovered missing till the next day.
On December 11, 1913 the Mona Lisa was finally
recovered after Leonardo Vincenzo tried to sell the painting to art dealer
Alfredo Geri in Florence, Italy.
