The Lost Leonardo – Fiction Series

Fiction series / Expected release 2025

The documentary feature The Lost Leonardo (released 2021), produced by Elk Film, is in development as a fictional series with international partners including Studiocanal, Creative Artist Agency, The Picture Company and 360 entertainment. 

The Lost Leonardo is the inside story behind the Salvator Mundi, the most expensive painting ever sold at $450 million. From the moment the painting is bought for $1175 at a shady New Orleans auction house, and the restorer discovers masterful Renaissance brushstrokes under the heavy varnish of its cheap restoration, the Salvator Mundi’s fate 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?
