Leonardo Da Vinci’s portrait of Christ ‘Salvator Mundi’ brings in $450.3 million at Christie’s

Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait of Christ “Salvator Mundi” sells for a record-smashing $450.3 million at Christie’s in New York, more than double the old mark for any work of art at an auction.

To celebrate we’ve taken a look at our own creative landscape of Art Galleries right here in Galway, where you are certain to pick up a very special piece without perhaps the extravagant price tag!!
