I don't believe she succeeds, Andrew. I think she descends into tedium.

I can't believe I'm adding the 60th post to this asinine thread.

With that strict, unbending way of thinking we can just write off the Mona Lisa as flea market schlock.
It is interesting that the Mona Lisa was not well known until it was stolen. People queue for hours to see a relatively small painting behind layers of glass when there are probably 50 paintings as interesting outside that they can walk straight up to. Even in the same room the magnificent painting on the back wall hardly gets looked at. Art is like that.

It is certainly the best known decorative element of Napoléon's bedroom.

Edmund Edmund, there's no accounting for people's sense of the erotic.

May not be the kindest thing to have remarked about the girlfriends, though, but perhaps the pretty ones weren't known at all. You'd really have to consult the cleaning maids or breakfast service for that sort of information.
