snowybunting: The hotelier agreed at the time to release Cohen - who is worth around $9.3billion - from the sale and repair it. Now he has sold it to Cohen for $16 million more than the pre-damaged price.Wynn must have repaired it with the really nice duct tape, the kind with the gold flecks in it.

Mentat: Or my personal favorite, "Giant Tree Farting at the Moon".

Glancing Blow: His "Choices in bar after 10 pm"
DoBeDoBeDo: I always thought it would be great if someone found a well hidden Picasso journal where he discusses his digust at himself for sucking at painting.
FlashHarry: A billionaire hedge fund manager bought Picasso's Le Rêve for $155million - t$16million more than he first agreed to pay right before its previous owner tore a hole in it with his elbow. Steven A. Cohen, whose SAC Capital just settled two insider-trading lawsuits with the government for $616 million, bought himself the belated gift after first agreeing to but it for $139milllion in 2006 from Vegas mogul Steve Wynn. The price is estimated to be the highest ever paid for an artwork by a U.S. collectorwhat's awesome is that this guy pays less tax as a percentage of his income than you or i. is america great or what!
Your Black Muslim Credit Union: I like how the painting gained value after getting wrecked and then fixed.This Cohen guy makes bad choices, and is criminal on how he got his money. The fact that he owns anything by Hirst shows he has more money than good taste./que pawn stars "sure at auction it would be worth $150million, but it's gonna sit in my store for a while, I'll give you ten grand"
jaybeezey: Unless you are i are part of the 47%
hitlersbrain: Art is good for separating idiots from their money. Actually... I think that's ALL it's good for.
farkeruk: Mark Rothko's work originated from the gallery picking up his decorator's tester board by mistake.

farkeruk: The stupidity of the art world. If Picasso had made a dirty protest on a canvas, it would be worth thousands.
cptjeff: Never quite understood Picasso's popularity. I'm more of a impressionist/ post-impressionist guy myself. If I could own any one major piece of artwork, it would be one of the paintings in Monet's Rouen Cathedral series. Cubisim has just never done it for me- the crap they shiat out these days even less. IMO, the impressionists hit the sweet spot between skillful composition and innovative technique. These days, it's just competitive masturbation over who can use the most "innovative" techniques and materials.
