The picture, painted by an Italian artist in about 1500, will soon be auctioned. The estimated cost is $ 100 million.

November 15, in New York, there will be bidding, during which Leonardo da Vinci’s Savior of the World will be on display for sale. On the eve of this event, the Christie’s auction house installed a camera in the exhibition space where the canvas is now: it shot video portraits of the people who were examining the painting. Among those whose faces were in the final clip, there are both ordinary visitors of the exhibition, and celebrities. In particular — Leonardo DiCaprio and Patti Smith.

“The Savior of the World” is the last work of Da Vinci, which is privately owned. For a long time the original version of the painting was considered lost, and the existing canvas was attributed to one of the students of da Vinci: allegedly he reproduced the work of the master. In the early 2000s, art dealers Warren Adelson, Alexander Parish and Robert Simon purchased the painting for only $10,000. In 2013 — already after the authorship of da Vinci was confirmed — the canvas became the property of Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev. Experts estimate the “The Savior of the World” at $100 million.
