July 2 (Bloomberg) -- A painting newly attributed to Leonardo da Vinci and once owned by King Charles I of England may fetch a record 125 million pounds ($200 million) at auction, The Daily Telegraph reported, without saying where it got the information.

The picture, entitled “Salvator Mundi” or “Saviour of the World,” depicts Christ with one hand raised in blessing, the Telegraph said. It is owned by a group of U.S. dealers, the newspaper said.

Originally thought to have been painted by a da Vinci protege, the painting will be displayed at London’s National Gallery in November, the Telegraph reported. It’s then expected to be offered for sale.
