New York – The last Leonardo Da Vinci painting still in the hands of a private collector will go under the hammer next month in New York, the Christie’s auction house said Tuesday, estimating its worth at $100 million.

Dating from around 1500, “Salvator Mundi” — which depicts Jesus Christ as the world’s savior — was long believed to be a copy of an original by the Italian master, until it was eventually certified as authentic.

The work will travel to Hong Kong, San Francisco and London, before spending three days on display in New York leading up to the sale.

Mining a common theme, next month’s auction will begin with the sale of the massive “Sixty Last Suppers” by pop artist Andy Warhol — which depicts Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” 60 times over, and is offered with a $50 million estimate.
