The Discovery & Restoration of Leonardo da Vinci's Long-Lost Painting "Salvator Mundi" | Robb Report

4887 ratings | 244236 views
Leonardo da Vinci is one of history's greatest artists and thinkers. Only about 15 of his paintings are known to exist and one was thought to be lost forever. Leonard painted that masterpiece, called "Salvator Mundi" (Savior of the World) around 1500. It was owned by no less than three kings and, in 1763, it disappeared. This video tells the story of that incredible painting, how it was rediscovered in 2005, and what happened when it went to auction at Christie's in November 2017.

another fake overhyped trap from da Vinci

That painting is as much by da Vinci as my d*ck! It may be from around that time, but it is definitely not by him.

The monalisa is Leonardo da Vinci himself, but no one notices.

Art auctions are such a weird thing. They only care about the prestige and the value of the painting. It's nice that the new owner has it loaned to a museum, but in my opinion things like this shouldn't be privately owned in any capacity. Especially when the owners remain anonymous (they didn't mention this Saudi prince's name) or it changes hands unofficially, we can't hold them accountable for things that might happen to paintings or other artifacts, and we run the risk of the painting being lost again.

Can you even imagine the feeling of RETOUCHING Leonardo Da Vinci's painting? Of painting on the same surface as one of the greatest artists and scientists of all time? My God. I'd throw up.

Ok, no. We know that aura is a thing, but this is just a public embarrassment. Don't poop your pants because you're looking at something that other people have told you is oh so great. That painting is one of many and it's not divine and Leonardo is one of thousands of excellent master painters throughout history. His name is worth far too much money because people are too lazy and stupid to go and explore the period and look for the many second grade popularity painters who were just as good, perhaps slightly different, but always excellent (including the oh so deep meanings), and worth so so much less because of this idiotic money laundering attention grabbing media-attracting divine circlejerk.

This is most likely, yet another, self portrait of Leonardo da Vinci himself, as are the 2 self portraits erroneously titled 'Mona Lisa'.

So many salty comments about how this artwork should be in Europe instead of the Abu Dhabi museum. Give me a break, at least they *bought* it from an auction instead of just yoinking it at sight. Also, please don't talk as if art can only be displayed in their countries or continents of origin - Europe would LOOSE massively in that kind of narrative. Oh sure, one museum might gain the Salvador, but overall European museums would loose vast amounts of their collections if we had to return everything and we wouldn't get nearly as much back. (though I do understand returning culturally important items that were stolen, like when Olof Hanson found a totem pole in 1920 and did a finders-keepers. The Haisla Nation were more than generous when they sent over a replica of the totem in return for the original they wanted back)
Ainsley B (4 days ago)
Helena Nilsson actually, the paint vanished again and they don’t even know if it got destroyed or not.
Ranouken (6 days ago)
I know many people here are complaining about the price being way too much for a painting, no matter if it’s a masterpiece, but honestly I’d rather have people spend their money on art than on some wall or bullshit like that.. as long as no one gets hurt, people should be able to spend their money however they like. I just wish small artists would be respected more and paid accordingly too bc those are some of the poorest people out there.

So, it’s currently missing... “Christie's confirmed that Prince Badr acted on behalf of Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism for display at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. In September 2018, the exhibition was indefinitely postponed and a January 2019 news report indicated that "no one knows where it is, and there are grave concerns for its physical safety”.” Uh... what?! A Saudi Prince just paid nearly half a billion clams for this painting, and now it’s missing?!
ColliCub (1 day ago)
Ainsley B Ainsley B Yeah, I think the issue with the Saudi’s Louvre Museum appears to be based around the fact that it’s been OVER-restored; as in, they’ve got it now, it’s been assessed by their experts and they’re like ‘What the f***, this isn’t what we were expecting!’ and they’re refusing to exhibit it. But as it’s their property now, they’re not obliged to divulge its condition or whereabouts and these guys are freaking out!
Ainsley B (4 days ago)
ColliCub not to be a bitch or anything, but what did they expect? It should have just stayed in Europe.

Not an original Da Vinci work from the man himself- but rather probably a work from his studio. Possible Leonardo Da Vinci touch ups or guidance on the piece, but hard to ever say. This is not synonymous with his level of mastery

Honestly if I had $400Million to spend on a painting I would, I would buy every painting I could to get it restored and back to its original state then give it to whatever museum wanted it. People are complaining that the money should’ve went to something more important like charity but the money goes straight to museums and the restoration of the painting(which can cost literally thousands). Its not money wasted, since the money is going back into the ‘community’.
