DA VINCI PAINTING OF JESUS SELLS FOR €450 MILLION AT AUCTION

A Leonardo da Vinci painting has broken the world record for the most expensive artwork ever sold.

It was bought for 450 million dollars – including fees – at Christie’s in New York.

Salvator Mundi, a portrait of Jesus, dates back to around 1500.

Fine art expert Dr Tim Hunter says it’s had a lot of restoration, but is still an excellent example.
