CASPER, Wyo. - Nov. 6, 2022 - PRLog -- "Saviour of the World" was at one time believed to have been destroyed. The painting disappeared from 1763 until 1900, when it was bought by Sir Charles Robinson as a work by Bernardino Luini, a follower of Leonardo.

Plenty of paintings have been called the "most controversial," and the Salvator Mundi (produced after 1500; "Savior of the World") is only the latest to be given that title.

Why is the Salvator Mundi so Controversial?

Between 2007 and 2010, Leonardo da Vinci experts from around the world studied Salvator Mundi in hopes of determining its authenticity.

According to Christie's, these scholars reached a "broad consensus" that the work was a genuine da Vinci—"the single original painting from which the many copies and student versions depend."

Despite the ongoing controversy, many scholars have come to believe that Salvator Mundi­ is, in fact, an Old Master painting. How much of the work was painted by Leonardo himself, rather than an assistant, remains a point of contention. Read more: http://salvatormundi.co.uk/why-is-the-salvator-mundi-so-c...
