CNN – Sotheby’s has announced that it will be selling “The Man of Sorrows,” a half-length panel painting of the resurrected Christ, thought to date from around 1500, which the auction house ambitiously claims is “the defining masterpiece of Botticelli’s late career.”

Scheduled to be auctioned in New York in January 2022, the Botticelli will be unveiled in Hong Kong before a global tour with viewings in Los Angeles, London and Dubai. The painting is certain to sell, courtesy of a pre-auction financial guarantee, and is estimated to raise more than $40 million.
