A 500-year-old painting of Christ believed to have been painted by Leonardo da Vinci is due to be sold in New York for up to $150m.

The painting is known as Salvator Mundi meaning Saviour of the World.

It is thought that it will be the highest auction price for a work by the artists who painted in Europe before the 19th Century.

Leonardo da Vinci died in 1519 and there are fewer than 20 of his paintings in existence.
