Cat Manson was part of the team who staged an international PR campaign which helped Leonardo’s Salvator Mundi become the most expensive work of art in history, when it sold for $450 million in New York in 2017.
In her first public talk on the sale, Cat will discuss the history of the work over the centuries, including its more recent rediscovery and path to auction. She will give a behind-the-scenes perspective on the painting, its sale and the subsequent reaction.
Touching on themes of possession, myth, brand, hype, avarice and the very nature of our reaction to art itself, her lecture will explore some of the debates around this work iconic of art.
