Thursday Things: A Little Bit of Art History I Never Expected

Welcome to Thursday Things, where you might find a rant, a rave, a question, or just about anything else! Let’s scrounge around in the junk drawer of my brain and see what we can find!

Did you know that Pablo Picasso was once accused of stealing the Mona Lisa? Or that, until the theft happened, the Mona Lisa wasn’t really all that famous? I ran across this fantastic little story (I swear it was all research for a book!) and I just had to share!

Side Note: I got to see some of Picasso’s works in person at an art exhibition recently. I’m glad I got to see them, because hey, it’s Picasso. But I can’t say that I was moved me at all. I was disappointed.
