Wed, Nov 28, 2011, 7-8:30 pm: unbound: a book club for art lovers
Discover the correlation of art and literature in SMA’s book club. Part love story, part mystery, Vanished Smile: The Mysterious Theft of Mona Lisa reopens the case of the most audacious and perplexing art theft ever committed. In Paris at the start of a radically new century, the most famous face in the history of art stepped out of her frame and into a sensational mystery. On August 21, 1922, the unfathomable happened – Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa vanished from the Louvre. More than twenty-four hours passed before museum officials realized she was gone. R.A. Scotti’s riveting ingeniously realized account is itself a masterly portrait of a world in transition. Combining her skills as a historian and a novelist, Scotti turns the tantalizing clues into a story of the painting’s transformation into the most familiar and lasting icon of all time. Enjoy light refreshments and discuss books with SMA’s inspiring galleries as a backdrop.
