Steve Wynn Elbows the Crap Out of Picasso's Dream

lerevepicasso.jpg

After closing a $139 million sale for the painting, luxury casino magnate Steve Wynn elbowed Picasso's "Le Reve" while reaching behind him to show it to a bunch of friends and added a hole to the canvas in the process. Wynn's last words, faithfully recorded by Nora Ephron, were "Oh shit. Look what I've done."

Hey, it was an abstract of a mistress anyway. If anybody asks about the hole, why not just say Picasso burned a cigarette through it after the dream took a turn for the worst? Art is all about interpretation, right? - Contributed by Angela Natividad

I hope his quote was accurate: it's exactly what I said when I spilled coffee on my Maxim.

I think it would be important to mention the REASON this happened.

Steve suffers from Retinitis Pigmentosa, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retinitis_pigmentosa which if you look into it, explains why this happened.
