Weekly Curiosity

Art
When Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre in 1912, six replicas were sold as the original, each at a huge price, in the three years before the original was recovered.
Vincent van Gogh sold only one painting in his entire life – to his brother, who owned an art gallery. The painting is titled Red Vineyard at Arles.
J.M.W. Turner’s painting The Fighting Temeraire was recently voted the greatest British painting in a public vote. On the other side of the Atlantic, Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans is rated the number one most influential artwork of all time.
