It is actually one out of the fewer 20 work of arts known to have been from the legendary Leonardo da Vinci and it is the only one that is in private hands while the rest are in Museums. Salvator Mundi went through 6 years of paintstaking research for its authenticity before it was finalized as Leonardo’s painting.

Leonardo’s Salvator Mundi took over the title of the most expensive piece of art ever sold at auction from Pablo Picasso’s “Les Femmes d’Alger (Version ‘O’) which was sold in 2015 at $179.3 million also in Christie’s auction hall in New York.
