On November 15, 2017, history was made when a painting titled Salvator Mundi, attributed to the great renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, completely shattered all records by selling at Christie's auction house in NYC for just over 450 million dollars. The painting, dated from around 1500 and lost for many years, was thought to be rediscovered in 2005 underneath multiple layers of overpainting, torn and decayed by worm holes. Over the next 6 years it was meticulously reworked and restored led by conservation expert Diane Dwyer Modestini at New York University.
This museum is dedicated to the Salvator Mundi and is the largest collection of artwork and ephemera on the subject. It is also an art project and company that goes by the name Real Salvator Mundi.
The Salvator Mundi will forever be the subject of much interest, intrigue and debate regarding quality and authenticity. However, there is only one Real Salvator Mundi (TM).
