Record Breaking Art

Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi. Photo: Christie’s Images Ltd. 2017.

In mid-November, the last privately owned painting by Leonardo da Vinci, entitled Salvator Mundi, sold at Christie’s for $450.3 million. It is officially the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction. To be precise, it sold for more than twice the amount of the former most expensive work ever sold, Picasso’s Les femmes d’Alger (Version ‘O’), which brought $179.4 million in 2015. The record breaking auction happened in under 20 minutes. Who bought it, you ask? Evidently an anonymous client of Christie’s global co-head of contemporary art.  Interestingly enough, the client bid in increments as large as $30 million.

Now that the record has been set by someone else, you’re off the hook! 😉 But seriously, if portraits are your jam, you’re in luck.
