The Steve Sells Le Reve

Stephen A. Wynn has sold Picasso's Le Reve to art collector Stephen A. Cohen for $155 million dollars. Rubin was the original bidder on the painting which inspired Wynn Las Vegas when Steve Wynn accidentally pierced the canvas his extremely pointy elbow while animatedly touting his art sales acumen. The deal was promptly cancelled and Steve set to have the painting repaired.

The original name for Wynn Las Vegas was "Le Reve" which translates from French as "the dream." The painting depicts a woman fellating an imaginary cubist penis while masturbating on a chair. Le Reve hung in the lobby of Wynn Las Vegas during the first year of operation, hung in a private gaming salon at Wynn Macau (which one employee told us was a replica) and lived one door down from The Country Club in Steve Wynn's Villa.

Between the errant elbow insurance settlement and the $20m appreciation, Steve Wynn managed to earn an extra ~$70m by making an epic mistake.

Wynn sells Le Reve

I'm very proud to announce that I will be following the Steve's advice and have decided to sell my reproduction of Le Reve to the highest bidder. The work herein is a print of Le Reve given to me as a birthday gift by my lovely wife, framed by yours truly and has hung in our dwellings for the last five years.

The starting bid is $15,500. We accept certified cashiers checks and PayPal.

Do we have an opening bid?

Big thanks to VT readers JimmyBond and DuLac55 for the email tips.

Comments & Discussion:

So he managed to sell old Wang Face this time without demonstrating to the buyer how she likes to be poked. Good for him.

I have not approved this sale.

So, Cohen bought it for MORE than the agreed-upon price before the elbow ($139MM)?

Goddamnit, some people are desperate for outlets to their stuff their money.

Where and when Mr. Cohen will be able to view his acquisition may have gotten a bit murkier...
