Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait of Jesus sells for $450m

Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait of Christ, “Salvator Mundi”, has broken an art record, selling for $450 million at Christie’s in New York, more than double the old mark for any work of art at an auction.

It was the last art work da Vinci left in private hands and had a pre-sale estimate of about $100 million.

But it once sold for a mere $125, and was only recently rediscovered.

The piece was purchased by an unidentified buyer bidding via telephone, after a protracted bidding war that stretched to nearly 20 minutes.
