Mona Lisa Smoking a Pipe[1][2] (French: Mona Lisa fumant la pipe) is a work of art by Arthur Sapeck (Eugène Bataille), first shown in 1883 at the second "Incohérents" exhibition. It was reproduced as an illustration in the journal "Le Rire" in 1887.

The image is on the cover of The Spirit of Montmartre: Cabarets, Humor and the Avant Garde, 1875-1905 Paperback – April 15, 1999 by Phillip Dennis Cate.


This 'augmented' Mona Lisa directly prefigures the famous Marcel Duchamp image L.H.O.O.Q. of 1919.
