NEW YORK - A lost painting by Leonardo da Vinci has been identified in an American collection and will be exhibited for the first time this November.
Titled Salvator Mundi (Savior of the World) and dating around 1500, the newly discovered masterpiece depicts a half-length figure of Christ facing frontally, holding a crystal orb in his left hand as he raises his right in blessing. One of some 15 surviving Leonardo oil paintings, the work will be included in "Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan," to be held at the National Gallery in London from November 9
