The Inside Story of the Painting That Seduced the World. It's Not Just Art.....It's Power, Politics and Greed.
This enthralling, globe-trotting documentary tells the inside story behind the Salvator Mundi, the most expensive painting ever sold at $450 million, claimed to be a long-lost masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci. Purchased from a shady New Orleans auction house, its buyers discover masterful brushstrokes beneath its cheap restoration. As its price soars, so do questions about its authenticity. Is this multi-million dollar painting actually by Leonardo -- or do certain power players simply want it to be? And, where is the painting now?
