The infamous Salvator Mundi painting sold in 2017 for $450.3 million, garnering worldwide attention. News stories had everyone thinking that this painting was made by the legendary Renaissance artist, Leonardo da Vinci. However, something major was left out of those headlines. Many da Vinci experts did not believe that he created the work. Several years after the notorious sale, an unknown American artist was presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Every year, thousands of artists from around the world apply to be an official Copyist at the Louvre Museum in Paris. While only a few are selected, this artist was somehow chosen for the program. As he prepared for his art to be shown in the Louvre, he came across the many people involved with the Salvator Mundi, exposing a dark mystery across continents. Selling Leonardo is an adventurous true story that lifts the curtain of the secretive, high-stakes art world.
