    The supposed value seems to ultimately detract from the artwork and the artist. It becomes noteworthy only due to the cost of the sale less interesting then is the actual life and work of Da Vinci which should somehow be considered private.

    Leonardo was a bit of a fake himself.
    His paintings are grossly over rated in terms of real artistic value.

    We're he painting today nobody would pay much attention to his ersatz effeminate naturalism.

    There is no doubt that the high money art market is primarily concerned with storing and handing down wealth and possibly even money laundering.

    Regardless of whether Da Vinci painted the original black and white picture, the coloured 'restored' version is a completely different painting of a man with a different bone structure.
    The highest authority should be invoked to decide this one. He already has a fake "Renwah" in Trump Tower to show his credentials.

    Yes, let The Donald decide.

    That Klimt fellow could be considered a misogynist, bending poor women's necks like that. Did they have to pose in that stance?

    So in sum, I stand by my feeling that there’s as much Leonardo in this Salvator Mundi as there is actual real wrestling in the WWE.
