To complete yesterday's post and the sale of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi", here are a few more illustrations of this theme in fine arts!

The "Salvator Mundi" is typically a depiction of Christ giving a blessing with his right hand and holding an orb with his left hand. The orb, often surmounted by a cross, is a representation of the world or of the entire cosmos.

Its origins are unclear but this theme became a popular subject during the Renaissance, as much in Italy as among the Dutch and Flemish painters!

The first painting you see here comes from the workshop of Leonardo da Vinci himself and, despite its few variations, is cleraly a direct copy of the original painting.

The second one is the work of German artist Albrecht Dürer, who must have begun his painting at almost the same time as Leonardo da Vinci. It could have been a true masterpiece but it was left unfinished and remains as a rough combination of painting of drawing.

As for the final painting, it was created by Titian, also a contemporary of da Vinci, and is now preserved at the Hermitage Museum in Russia!

Сегодня все крупнейшие издания написали о мировом рекорде, поставленном картиной “Спаситель Мира» Леонардо да Винчи. Но даже после того, как она стала самой дорогой из когда-либо проданных картин, остаются сомневающиеся в её ценности и подлинности.
По мнению критиков из The New York Times, сравнивающих работу Леонардо со знаменитым автопортретом Дюрера, от изображения «Спасителя Мира» не веет той харизмой, которую излучает образ немецкого художника, а напротив, герой Леонардо «скорее всего будет бороться за свое место в городском автобусе, чем спасать Мир».
Также они приводят доводы, что мастерство исполнения не столь искусно, сколь оно проявилось в других картинах художника.
Тем не менее, история расставит всё по своим местам.
