March 1: Samek Distinguished Lecturer to Discuss Conserving da Vinci’s ‘Salvator Mundi’

Dianne Modestini — the conservator who cleaned, restored and preserved Leonardo da Vinci’s “Salvator Mundi,” which became the world’s most expensive painting, selling for $450 million — will present Bucknell’s Samek Distinguished Lecture on Thursday, March 1 at 6 p.m. in the Elaine Langone Center (ELC) Forum. Her talk is free and open to the public.

Modestini, who was also part of the team responsible for authentication, will discuss the 10-year process it took to reveal the da Vinci masterpiece once thought lost.
