Steve Wynn Sells ‘Penis Picasso’ Painting for HUGE Profit

“Hedge fund manager Steven A Cohen has bought a Picasso painting from casino mogul Steve Wynn for a record price — six years after Wynn accidentally put his elbow through it.

Cohen, 56, who runs SAC Capital Advisors, purchased Le Rêve, a 1932 oil painting of Picasso’s 22-year-old mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter, for $155m (£103m). It is the highest price a US collector has ever paid for an artwork.”*

Steve Wynn is selling the famous painting “Le Reve” for a record amount of money – $155 million! Why is it worth so much, even after he damaged the painting? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the fine art.
