Another Copy of the Mona Lisa Up For Sale

October 8 2021

Video: Artcurial

Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz:

Artcurial in Paris will be auctioning off a seventeenth century copy of the Mona Lisa on the 9th November 2021. The copy will carry an estimate of €150,000 - €200,000. The video they have produced above shows the expectation that this picture might achieve a similarly bonkers price compared to recent examples.
