This section of the website is devoted to information about Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi. Although the painting and my involvement with it are completely distinct from the activities of Robert Simon Fine Art, I thought it would be useful to gather here some of the references to the painting, its discovery, and reception. - RBS
