How many people view the Mona Lisa painting in the Louvre?
No, it has been said she is never to leave the Louvre again. She has been exhibited elsewhere twice: from December 1962 to March 1963, the French government lent it to the Un…ited States to be displayed in New York City and Washington D.C.. In 1974, the painting was exhibited in Tokyo and Moscow.
It is in the Musee du Louvre in Paris, France.

She was thinking of all the bills she had to pay. The legend goes that Mona Lisa had bad teeth, so she didn't show them. In those days, dental hygiene was not a personal poin…t, so many people did not have nice smiles. It was also a fact of life that women who bore children did not get enough calcium, so they lost teeth. There is a folk saying, "have a child, lose a tooth" that was common wisdom until the 20th century. So the most common wisdom about Mona Lisa not smiling was that she was a new mother and had lost teeth. It was a very common problem during that time period.
Because some Italian people believed it had been wrongfully taken to France, and they wanted it back.
