Texas - The reported $192 million 'transfer fee' targeting a reclusive Lily Pond Lane, East Hampton art buff has been rubbished as wildly optimistic pie-in-the-sky.
Leonardo Da Vinci's fabulous Salvator Mundi dazzled the art world at London's Royal Academy last year when millions flocked to marvel at the latest of greatest of all grand masters' resurrected treasures.

Which, taking in fees and taxes and stuff, would see the painting fetch little change from $200 million.
A hasty whip-round of the Museum's top oil tycoon patrons might easily see $100 stumped up in a day or two.

"$200 million? It's still a helluva price to pay for a new quarterback," the art correspondent at celeb fanzine LA HagFagSlagMag.con tweeted this evening.
