On Saturday, July 24th, Guild Hall held a special presentation of the documentary “The Lost Leonardo”. Fresh from the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival, the film tells the story of the 2017 $450 million sale at Christie’s of “Salvator Mundi”, the most expensive painting ever sold. The global controversy about its being a real long-lost masterpiece by da Vinci or not, is an interesting story of expertise, art provenance, fame, power and money.
The screening was presented by the Hamptons International Film Festival and Sony Pictures Classics. Actor and HIFF Board Co-Chair Alec Baldwin and HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent held a discussion and Q&A after the film. www.GuildHall.org
