CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of audio film review on the new documentary about the art world, “The Lost Leonardo,” in select theaters, including Chicago’s Music Box Theatre, on August 27th, 2021.

This film is the story of the “Salvador Mundi,” latin for Savior of the World, a painting which may or may not have been created by Leonardo da Vinci. It originally was discovered in 2005 when a pair of art specialists bought it from a New Orleans estate for $1175 dollars. At first thought to be a copy, on closer inspection it was found to have characteristics of an authentic da Vinci, and was brought back to life by a restoration artist. This began years of high dollar speculation, culminating in a Saudi Prince buying it for a world record $450 million.
