Hey it’s Scott Alan,
With Christmas on the way, what do you get the art aficionado who has everything? How about a previously lost da Vinci?
The cost? $450M USD.
A painting of Christ by Leonardo da Vinci sold at auction this week for a record $450M!
The painting, known as “Salvator Mundi” (Latin for “savior of the world”) was painted around 1500 and is one of fewer than 20 paintings known to exist by the artist.
The $450M far surpasses the $179M paid for Pablo Picasso’s “Women of Algiers”.
Merry Christmas indeed!
