The rediscovery of Salvator Mundi is one of the most significant artistic findings in history. It encapsulates an important chapter in the history of art, and its first ever display at the Louvre Abu Dhabi is not only milestone for the region, but for the world too.

Dating from circa Protected content , Salvator Mundi is an oil and panel painting, executed onto a walnut panel, depicting a half-length figure of Christ the Savior of the World, facing the viewer, and dressed in flowing robes of lapis and crimson. The figure holds a crystal orb in his left hand as he raises his right hand in benediction. Da Vinci’s seemingly infinite curiosity was equaled only by his power of invention. His genius lay in his ability to connect science and anatomy, geology, math, engineering, architecture, theatre, optics and dozens of other disciplines. In in Salvator Mundi, da Vinci’s knowledge of optics is evident in the representation of the orb. It is rendered with beautiful scientific precision.

After the exhibition, we can have a coffee / lunch at the restaurant.
