Description
"For two centuries, art dealers had searched in vain for the Holy Grail of art history: a portrait of Christ as the Salvator Mundi by Leonardo da Vinci. Many similar paintings of greatly varying quality had been executed by Leonardo's assistants in the early sixteenth century. But where was the original by the master himself? In November 2017, Christie's auction house announced they had it. But did they? [This book examines an] icon invested with the power to make or break the reputations of scholars, billionaires, kings, and sheikhs"--,Provided by publisher.
