Spooky Long-Lost Da Vinci Painting Hailed as $200 Million Masterpiece: “An eerie painting of Christ holding a glass orb in one hand and making a benediction with the other, all the while leveling an otherworldly stare at the viewer, has been authenticated as a long-lost Leonardo da Vinci portrait, putting it ‘up there with any artistic discovery of the last 100 years,’ according to ARTnews. Called ‘Salvator Mundi’ (‘Savior of the World’), the painting will now go on view in a Leonardo show opening at London’s National Gallery in November, and it is said to carry an asking price of $200 million.” (@ artinfo)
