Authenticity Doubts Still Linger Over The Most Expensive Painting Ever Sold At Auction

February 20, 2019

There are still many who doubt the authenticity of Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi.  Matthew Landrus, a research fellow at Oxford University’s Wolfson College, believes it was painted by Bernardino Luini, one of da Vinci’s studio assistants.  Now we have conflicting reports as to whether the Louvre will feature the piece in their upcoming Leonardo exhibit.  Who knows if the authenticity question will ever be resolved, but it does make for interesting reading … and maybe a documentary?
