Quadro mais caro do mundo anda no mar

By Ninian Carter

June 12, 2019 - “Salvator Mundi”, uma pintura a óleo controversamente atribuída a
Leonardo da Vinci, vendida por $450m em 2017 e que logo desapareceu das vistas, estará a decorar o iate "Serene" do príncipe saudita Mohammed Bin Salman – que poderá estar no mar Vermelho.

The whereabouts of the believed Leonardo Da Vinci masterpiece that sold at auction in 2017 for a record $450 million, has been solved, according to Artnet.

“Salvator Mundi” is allegedly aboard superyacht Serene, owned by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. As of late May, the yacht’s location was in the Red Sea off Sharm el-Sheikh, an Egyptian resort town.

It seems likely that the controversial painting, that has experts at cross-purposes as to its authenticity, will remain aboard the yacht until the Saudis create a planned cultural hub in the Kingdom’s Al-Ula region.

Experts at the Louvre in Paris have attributed the work to Da Vinci’s workshop, rather than to the artist alone. The museum has asked to borrow the work for an October exhibition of da Vinci’s work to mark 500 years since his death, but has been declined – possibly because they refuse to authenticate it as an autograph work.
