Not the painting everyone has has suffered been a fan several of the attacks Mona during Lisa, and its lifetime. In 1956, acid was thrown over the lower half of the painting while it was on display at a museum in Montauban in France and, later that year, someone threw a rock at it, causing the loss of a speck of pigment near the sitter’s left elbow. In 1974, whilst on show at the Tokyo National Museum, a disabled woman attempted to spray the painting with red paint in protest against the venue’s lack of disabled access. More recently, in 2009, a Russian woman angered at being denied French citizenship bought a porcelain mug from the Louvre gift shop and hurled it at the masterpiece. Thankfully, the Mona Lisa has been protected by glass since 1960, and in 2005 was placed in a 1.52-inch, bulletproof case.
