A $200 Million Da Vinci At The DMA? It Could Happen
The Dallas Museum of Art has put in a bid to buy a painting -- and not just any painting. This one's recently been attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci.
The museum won’t say how much it has bid, but the masterpiece's value has been estimated as high as $200 million. It’s currently at the museum but not on display.
Da Vinci painted the work, known as the Salvator Mundi, in the late 15th century.
If the DMA wins the auction, it would be only the second U.S. museum to have a DaVinci on display – the National Gallery in Washington has the other. And it would make North Texas home to both a Da Vinci and a Michelangelo (the Kimbell's The Torment of Saint Anthony).
