#SalvatorMundi

MOST RECENT

Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the sale of “Salvador Mundi.” Attributed to Renaissance master #LeonardoDaVinci, it sold for $450,300,000 at @christiesinc, making it the most expensive artwork in history. The sale prompted many, including artist @eaglesjordan, to ask how we, as a society, value objects. In his latest work “Jesus, Christie’s,” he features an original copy of the Christie’s #SalvatorMundi sale catalogue, laser-cut to accommodate twelve medical tubes that were used for collecting the blood of an HIV+ undetectable long-term survivor and activist. Catalogue, tubes, needles and residual blood are encased in high-polished resin, mirroring the dimensions of the sold painting to forge a modern-day reliquary. It will be on view at Museum from November 15, 2018—the anniversary of the Christie’s sale—through the month of December, including #WorldAIDSDay (Dec. 1).

Che fine ha fatto il quadro più costoso del mondo? Il 15 novembre 2017, esattamente un anno fa, il martelletto della casa d’aste Christie’s, a New York, fa passare alla storia il #SalvatorMundi attribuito a #LeonardodaVinci. Dopo 18 minuti e 47 secondi di rilanci, l’opera viene aggiudicata per la cifra record di 450,3 milioni di dollari, diritti di vendita inclusi. Le ipotesi intorno all’identità del misterioso collezionista sono spazzate via da un tweet del 7 dicembre, postato da Abu Dhabi: l’olio su tavola di noce (65 centimetri di altezza per 45 di larghezza) entrerà nella collezione del #Louvre d’Oriente inaugurato appena un mese prima. Il nuovo possessore del dipinto è #MohammedbinSalman, principe ereditario dell’Arabia Saudita, che, “prestando” il Leonardo agli Emirati, rinnova un’alleanza fraterna. La data dello svelamento del dipinto viene programmata per il 18 settembre. Ma, a sorpresa, il 3 settembre scorso, il Louvre Abu Dhabi annuncia il rinvio dell’esposizione a data da destinarsi. Da allora, il buio. 🔄 Seguici su @larepubblica: il mondo in diretta, anche su Instagram

One row down, five more to go in this massive Lego mosaic of Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi. Looks like the hand / sphere actually turned out pretty good. You can seen in the pictures I’ve used about 100+ colors instead of normal Lego colors. #onebrickatatimelego #lego #art #mosaic #workinprogress #pixelart #afol #davinci #salvatormundi

It’s not a secret that New York collects sales tax on all the items sold within the state. For example, the total sales tax rate in NYC is 8.875%. However, did you know that out-of-town buyers don’t have to pay this sales tax? For example, Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, who bought Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece “Salvator Mundi” for a record-breaking $450 million at Christie’s auction last year, won’t pay $39 million in sales taxes if he takes the painting outside the United States using a certain type of carrier.

Salvator Mundi
Da Vinci is believed to have had a condition called intermittent exotropia — commonly referred to as being “walleyed” — a form of strabismus, eye misalignment that affects about 4 percent of the U.S. population. Those with exotropia usually end up favoring one eye over the other, which means they are more likely to see the world as if it were, say, painted on a flat canvas.
