The Steve Sells The Other Picasso

Wynn fetishists proudly recall the glorious first few months after the property opened when both Le Reve and Still Life With Tulips were hung in the main hotel lobby above each registration desk.
I spent an hour staring at both as employees stared at me wondering if I was casing the joint out. One lobby host asked me if I needed help and I told her "I'm enjoying the Picassos." She looked at what I was looking at, shrugged her shoulders and went to go help another guest.
Well, now the dynamic duo of Wynn Picassos (to which a third was added a few years ago) has been broken up. Steve Wynn sold Still Life With Tulips at auction yesterday to an anonymous bidder for $41.5m.
Call me sentimental, call me a Picasso lover, call me anything you will but I stand by the opinion that those two Picasso paintings really held the resort together.
