Leonardo da Vinci's Last Painting Sold in New York City Auction for Over $450,000,000

The Salvator Mundi is the last painting known to be created by Leonardo da Vinci before he died. After remaining undiscovered for centuries, it was restored and unveiled in 2011, where it was promptly acquired by a rich private collector. Fast forward to yesterday, and the painting was auctioned off at Christie's here in New York for a record-setting $450.3 million in an exhilarating fashion.

Check out the full report on the New York Times to see how it all played out.
