An academic criminologist calls the attribution of Salvator Mundi to da Vinci a “miracle”. Is it? With improved analytic techniques, changed attributions on old paintings are not that uncommon. In the absence of new evidence, skepticism about this painting (presumably because of its price tag) doesn’t really add much value. Elegant though this essay is, it’s taking the debate nowhere.
