Art lovers around the world are searching for the “Savior” of Italy’s artist Leonardo Da Vinci.
According to Fox News, the Louvre museum (Paris, France) plans to hold a painting exhibition this year. However, the museum recently announced the postponement of the event indefinitely. New York Time quoted employees here saying “it is impossible to determine the current location of the famous painting”.
Earlier, after buying the 2017 work, Prince Bader of Saudi Arabia – also announced the display at the Abu Dhabi Museum. However, the picture does not appear. The museum side did not explain the reason.
According to the Times survey, the Savior was brought to the city of Zurich, Switzerland in the fall of 2018 to be assessed by an insurance company. However, this operation was canceled without reason. The whereabouts of the painting have been mysterious since then.
Dianne Modestini, Professor of Fine Arts at New York University, said: “It’s not fair to hide such a masterpiece from art lovers around the world.” She was assigned to reinstate the painting before going to auction.
The Messiah was painted around the 16th century, the same time as the Mona Lisa. The painting once belonged to the collection of the First King Charles of England. After many historical events, the painting reappeared in the 19th century in the UK, in a state of severe deterioration. In 2017, Prince Bader bought a record price of $ 450 million. Christ is the only private Da Vinci work.
