Hers is the most famous smile in the world, visited and studied by thousands every year, a priceless work of art —the one and only Mona Lisa.  Or is it unique? With its striking similarities to the painting in the Louvre Museum, the so-called Isleworth Mona Lisa has remained an art world mystery since she was found in 1912.

Or is the Isleworth the work of a talented forger? Secrets of the Dead: The Mona Lisa Mystery, airing Tuesday, March 29 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV, sets out to unravel the clues.
