Art critic Ben Lewis, in an interview with the newspaper, said that the staff of the London National Gallery deliberately concealed from the bidders before the sale, that the group of experts had not reached a unanimous decision on the authenticity of the work.

It is noted that of the five experts, two rated the picture as real, one considered it a fake, two more could not give an accurate assessment. Thus, the real cost of the canvas can be as little as $ 1,175.

In late March, the media reported on the possible disappearance of the painting “Savior of the World.”
