Leonardo's Salvator Mundi: Scholarship, Science and Skullduggery

 
  6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The newly discovered Salvator by Leonardo, the world’s most costly picture, is one of his most notable creations, in which he used his ‘science of art’ to transform a stock subject into a profound expression of the ineffability of the divine. 

We will look at the remarkable story of its discovery, its conservation and scientific examination, the research into how it works as an image and its provenance. We will also look at the scandalous events of its ownership and how it came to be where it is now.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture 

Cost: Free of Charge
