Dna solves mystery surrounding the disappearance of the world’s most famous missing poster
This month, New York’s Daily News reported that the world’s greatest poster — a 1787 Dutch map that now has over 100 million views — is missing from a museum after researchers discovered a note in the upper part of the canvas saying that it was to show the “World Famous and Missing Poster,” a landmark map of a small town in New York City. It was dated 1833, less than a year before the famous poster became known.
The mystery about the map ha천안출장샵d long intrigued museum officials, with researchers saying that the map and the entire art exhibit had been on display at the Museum of Modern Art for nearly a century. But now it’s believed that the poster was never meant to be on display, and has left many of its priceless images on the museum’s grounds, apparently lost in the years since it was put on display.

In his handwritten note, he described a map showing how he had been collecting maps, and added that there is one missing. The map is numbered 539-N-3820, and is the missing poster.
Schleiner told the Daily News that he found the letter and his note online and confirmed that they were real. According to the Daily News, “the maps in question dated to 1609, at a time when there was only one major city in the United States.” The artist painted these works over the years with the aid 룰렛of a blacksmith in 1835.
Schleiner said that while he could not be 100 percent sure that the map and the paper note from 1787 were taken from the same map, “all of the art found in the map room had been removed.”
Although Schleiner told the Daily News that the ma
