The Lost Leonardo
Through Thursday, September 30
Cinema Art Theater, Lewes
Presented by Rehoboth Beach Film Society
The Lost Leonardo is a lively and engrossing documentary about the most scrutinized piece of artwork of all times.
This film presents the inside story behind the Salvator Mundi painting. From the moment it was unknowingly purchased for $1,175 at a shady New Orleans auction house, and the restorer discovers masterful Renaissance brushstrokes under the heavy varnish of its cheap restoration, the painting’s fate is determined by an insatiable quest for fame, money, and power. As its price soars to $450 million, so do questions about its authenticity: Is this painting really by Leonardo da Vinci? Unraveling the hidden agendas of the richest men and most powerful art institutions in the world, The Lost Leonardo reveals how vested interests in the Salvator Mundi are of such tremendous power that truth becomes secondary. [2021, US/UK/DK/FR/SE, 90 min, Rated: PG-13]
Screen International writes, “A bona fide cinema crowd-pleaser! Nothing quite like a good story, well-told." The Daily Beast reports, “A surprisingly suspenseful story about art, money, and politics.”
