Leonardo Da Vinci Painting Hits Auction Block In NYC, Expected To Fetch Around $100M


The last Leonardo da Vinci painting owned privately is going to auction in New York City next month — with a pre-sale estimate of around $100 million. Christie's announced Tuesday that the depiction of Jesus, titled "Salvator Mundi," will be offered Nov. 15.

"The Salvator Mundi is the Holy Grail of Old Master paintings," declared Christie's specialist Alan Wintermute.

Da Vinci portrait of Christ, 'Salvator Mundi', sells for record $450.3 million

Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait of Christ, “Salvator Mundi”, sold for a record-smashing $450.3 million on Wednesday at Christie‘s, more than double the old price for any work of art at auction.

The painting, only recently rediscovered, was the last da Vinci left in private hands and fetched more than four times Christie‘s’ pre-sale estimate of about $100 million.

It beat a record set in May 2015 by Pablo Picasso’s “Les Femmes D‘Alger,” which sold for $179.4 million, and constituted more than half the sale’s total of $785.9 million, which came in well above the roughly $450 million pre-sale estimate.
