After Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi" sold for a record-breaking $450 million in November 2017, The Louvre Abu Dhabi was scheduled to display the painting. According to Business Insider, the exhibition was suddenly and inexplicably canceled following the sale and the painting faded into near obscurity. On Monday, Artnet reported that the masterpiece has been sitting on Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman's superyacht instead. Citing "two principals involved in the transaction," Artnet's Kenny Schachter said that "Salvator Mundi" was "whisked away in the middle of the night on MBS's [Mohammed bin Salman's] plane and relocated to his yacht, the Serene."
