Leonardo da Vinci: Salvator Mundi

For this study, we used the A-EyeTM to analyze authorship questions surrounding the works of Leonardo da Vinci -- in particular, Salvator Mundi, the world's most expensive painting and among the most controversial. Given the limited number of extant authenticated paintings by Leonardo upon which to train the A-Eye, this project tested the limits of our system and required corroborative techniques of testing and analysis.

This study is the subject of our article "A Neural Network Looks at Leonardo's (?) Salvator Mundi" in the December 2021 issue of Leonardo (MIT Press), which includes our tutorial animation.
