Christie's will present two stunning works of art in the upcoming November evening auction. The main auction lots will be a massive 60-panel picture of Andy Warhol's "Last Supper" with an estimate of $ 50 million, together with the famous work of Leonardo da Vinci named "Savior of the World", which experts estimated at $ 100 million.

According to Christie's representatives, the Da Vinci picture is guaranteed by third parties and arrives from a private European collection. The last known owner of the work is the Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev. He bought this work in 2013 for 127.5 million dollars.

Explaining the decision to place Leonardo next to Warhol in a modern sale, the head of the department of postwar and contemporary art Loik Guser said that this reflects a "dialogue between the two artists." He also wanted to show Christie's propensity to "change" the category of sale. It is worth noting that the man had already achieved success in creating the so-called "hybrid sales", which combine unexpected offers of classical art along with advanced modern works.

Senior specialist of the "Old Masters" named Alan Wintermuth told about the legendary history of the work of Leonardo at a press conference. Dated to 1500 year, this is one of the artist's 20 known works and is reportedly the latter hold in private hands. It was first discovered in the collection of King Charles (1600-1649), and in 1763 the painting was auctioned, and there was no information about it until 2005. In 2011 the work appeared on display at the National Gallery in London.

The painting has been long considered the product of a follower of Leonardo and was sold in London in 1958 for only 45 pounds. Wintermouth said that now the canvas is checked by experts of the Metropolitan Museum and resulted as authentic.
