London’s prestigious National Gallery is about to open a major show of Leonardo da Vinci paintings. Included in this exhibition will be a painting formally called Salvator Mundi or Savior of the World. Art Historians and Leonardo scholars believe this painting to be by Leonardo which is why it will be included in the exhibition but there is no absolute proof that this work of art, though acknowledged to be exceedingly fine, is in fact by Leonardo. I am asking you to read an article from the Los Angeles Times (http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-charney-leonardo-20111106,0,2568694.story) and offer your thoughts on this attribtion as a Leonardo work of art. You might also visit London’s National Gallery website (http://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/) for additional information regarding the Salvator Mundi and the larger Leonardo exhibition.
