The Mona Lisa disappeared on a Monday, a day when the Louvre was normally closed for cleaning.
The Next Day
August 22, 1911
It wasn't until 27 hours after the theft that Louvre employees realized the Mona Lisa was gone. The police were summoned and that's when all hell broke loose.
Anyone and everyone was a suspect. From oddballs who stared lovingly at the painting to rich greedy American collectors to foreign powers.
