This list is for all you fans of The Da Vinci Code who can't get enough of art conspiracy theories. If these theories are to be believed, all these famous works of art have hidden meanings or clandestine scandals surrounding them. Many are da Vinci's, but the famous Italian polymath certainly wasn't the only artist who knew how to hide a secret in plain sight.
Some of the theories on this list are pretty bizarre, but if you've found your way here, you're probably okay with that. These ideas are rife with speculation; art historians, stick with your books and academic journals. Here you will find only wonder at the potential of the world and myriad forgotten histories and secret messages buried all around us. Absent uncovering a note from the artist specifically detailing his intentions, there's no way to prove any of these famous art conspiracies are true. But it's fun to think about how these famous artists may have left hidden messages for us.
