In the news today, a painting considered the last of Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings was sold at auction for $450 million dollars. It is one of only sixteen surviving paintings of da Vinci. In 1958, it was sold for 125 dollars. At the time, it was considered a forgery. However, restoration of the painting over six years proved that it was an original da Vinci. This is the largest sum ever paid for any painting by a collector.
