The Isleworth Mona Lisa
The Isleworth Mona Lisa, not showing the pillars. Oil on canvas 84.5 x 64.5 cm
This version of the Mona Lisa was bought in 1914 by the artist and critic Hugh Blaker, who lived in Isleworth, in west London. Unlike the Louvre's Mona Lisa, around 1503-19, the painting is done on canvas (the original is on panel), it has columns on the sides of the picture and the landscape is very simple. Blacker reported that the picture had come from a Somerset aristocratic collection. In 1962, the painting was bought by the UK-based art collector Henry Pulitzer, who exhibited it very briefly in Phoenix, Arizona, in a commercial gallery.
Salvator Mundi is a painting of Christ as Salvator Mundi (Latin: Saviour of The World) by Leonardo da Vinci, dated to c. 1500. The painting shows Jesus, in Renaissance dress, giving a benediction with his raised right hand and crossed fingers while holding a transparent rock crystal orb in his left hand, signaling his role as savior of the world and master of the cosmos, and representing the 'crystalline sphere' of the heavens, as it was perceived during the Renaissance. Around 20 other versions of the work are known, by students and followers of Leonardo, and some chalk preparatory drawings are held in the Royal Collection.
Long thought to be a copy, veiled with overpaints, of a lost original, it was rediscovered in 2005, restored, and included in a major Leonardo exhibition at the National Gallery, London, in 2011–12. Several leading scholars have since considered it to be an original work by Leonardo da Vinci, although this attribution has been disputed by other specialists.
It is one of fewer than 20 known works by Leonardo, and was the only one to remain in private hands. It was sold at auction by Christie's in New York, on 15 November 2017, for $450.3 million, setting a new record for most expensive painting ever sold.
