The most expensive painting Da Vinci will appear in UAE

  • Da Vinci died in 1519 and there are fewer than 20 of his paintings in existence. Thousands flock daily to the Louvre in Paris to see his masterpiece Mona Lisa

"Salvator Mundi", a painting of Christ by Leonardo Da Vinci that recently sold for a record $450 million, is heading to the Louvre Abu Dhabi in a coup for the bold new museum, it announced on Wednesday. In particular, Abu Dhabi rents the Portrait of an Unknown Woman by Leonardo da Vinci and painting Napoleon Crossing the Alps by Jacques-Louis David.

"Da Vinci's Salvator Mundi is coming to #Louvre Abu Dhabi", Louvre Abu Dhabi said on its twitter feed late on Wednesday. The painting "Savior of the world" the crowned representative of the Arab countries bought at auction in the United States for $ 450 million.

Yet the identity of the successful telephone bidder has yet to be revealed, sparking intense speculation about the painting's new owner. French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche earlier reported that two investment firms had purchased the painting in the hope of lending it to museums.

The New York Times reports the mystery buyer was a little-known Saudi prince according to documents it reviewed. But the auction house would not confirm whether the museum was behind the purchase.

The presence of Salvator Mundi at The Louvre Abu Dhabi will be a great draw. Under a 30-year agreement, France provides expertise, lends works of art and organises exhibitions in return for one billion euros ($1.16bn).

These acquisitions, including that of "Salvator Mundi", are likely part of a dedicated effort to raise the global cultural profile of the U.A.E.

Rybolovlev owned the painting until November 15, when Prince Bader made it the world's most expensive painting by shelling out $450,312,500 for it. Picasso's "Les Femmes d'Alger" ("Women of Algiers") held the previous record of $179,364,992.

The 26-inch-tall painting, which was created at around the same time as the "Mona Lisa", depicts Jesus in Renaissance-style clothing.

Upon re-emerging at auction in 1958, it was dismissed as a copy and sold for just £45 ($60).

New York-based art collector and da Vinci expert Robert Simon and art dealer Alexander Parish found the painting in Louisiana in 2005 and purchased it for $10,000.

In 2013, Salvator Mundi was bought by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev for $127.5 million.
