In November 2017, the painting “Salvator Mundi” made the headlines because it was sold for a record $450 million. Back then, it was the highest auction prize for any work of art. Now, just four years later, the same work is all over the news again – because a new art catalog casts doubt on the painting’s authenticity.

It was Saudi culture minister Prince Badr bin Abdullah who won the bid at Christie’s auction house back in 2017. He bought it as a fully authenticated Leonardo da Vinci. Yet, even then, some experts doubted that this version was a work by the master himself.

Painful depreciation

And now, the catalog of the Prado exhibition „Leonardo and the copy of the Mona Lisa“ registers the painting in the lesser category „attributed works, workshop or authorised and supervised by Leonardo.“ If other notable experts agree with this assessment, a massive depreciation is to be expected – and the Saudi investor faces a substantial loss.

About the artist: Ingolf Kühn

In the creative process occurs the artist Ingolf Kühn often a special trance – called like a state, which is also called floating (flowing). He is not only fun, but gives him a reply to the question about the meaning of life. With all his work, he leaves his fingerprint to posterity. Today the artist Ingolf Kühn works in his studio in Cottbus in very different projects. The painting, the possibilities of airbrush, and the restoration of cars he can go up to the point of exhaustion.

Completion is his passion, perfection, especially of himself as an individual and collective being. Sometimes subtle, but always full of energy and never quiet.
