The Las Vegas casino billionaire recently made international headlines after bumping into his painting by Pablo Picasso and putting a hole in it. How pointy must his elbows be to put a hole in the canvas?
He had recently agreed to sell the work for a record $139 million to fellow billionaire Steven Cohen. It would have become the highest price paid for a painting, but Wynn has chose to repair and keep his damaged Picasso painting.
Steve Wynn Damages Picasso Painting With His Elbow
“An aide to Steve Wynn announced that he will keep and restore the painting he accidentally damaged. Steve Wynn uses gestures with his hands while speaking and also has retinitis pigmentosa, so his peripheral vision is affected. There were other masterpieces in the room, one by Renoir ad another by Matisse, but they were not damaged.” Art Daily
