Atlantic Highlands Arts Council to host screening of "The Lost Leonardo"

(ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ) -- The Lost Leonardo is the inside story behind the “Salvator Mundi,” the most expensive painting ever sold at $450 million. In this powerfully dramatized Sony Pictures Classics film, you'll find out how the story unfolds! Atlantic Highlands Arts Council (AHArts) will host a film screening on Saturday, April 23rd at 4:00pm at the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council Gallery as a fundraiser for FilmOneFest, the international film festival based in Atlantic Highlands.

The painting (originally purchased for $1,175) displayed Renaissance brushstrokes during a restoration. The moment the discovery of the painting occurs, the fate of “Salvator Mundi” is determined by an insatiable quest for fame, money and power. As its price soars, so do the questions about its authenticity: is this painting really by Leonardo da Vinci? Unravelling the hidden agendas of the richest men and the most powerful art institutions in the world, The Lost Leonardo reveals how vested interests in the “Salvator Mundi” are of such tremendous power that truth becomes secondary.

Directed by Andreas Koefoed is known for Ballroom Dancer (2011), Albert's Winter (2009) and At Home in the World (2015). The film runs 1 hour 36 minutes and is rated PG 13 for nude art images. 

Tickets are $20 for adults ($10 for students) and include a pre-film reception with light fare and refreshments as well as a short talk about the premise of the film. Tickets for the film and reception are available for purchase online or at the door.

Sustaining Membership to AHArts includes two complimentary tickets to a benefit film screening per year, which can be redeemed at this event.
