A Leonardo Da Vinci masterpiece that sold for a record $450 million will be unveiled for the public later this year at the Louvre Abu Dhabi museum.

The painting, “Salvator Mundi,” acquired in November by the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, can be viewed starting Sept. 18, the museum said Wednesday in a statement on its website. Saudi Prince Bader bin Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Farhan Al Saud bid for the piece on the department’s behalf.
