For over half a century, New York City’s Four Seasons restaurant has been a place where Picasso meets the power lunch.
The 19-foot-by-20-foot curtain, called “Le Tricorne,” has been at the Four Seasons since 1959.
A plan to move Picasso’s “Le Tricorne” from the Four Seasons restaurant to fix the wall behind it has touched off a spat between the building’s owner and a preservation group.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has received a donation of Cubist art worth more than $1 billion from the emeritus chairman of Estee Lauder.
The cache, dating from the artist’s most creative period from 1900 to 1932, includes lithographs, portraits, watercolors, and sketches — plus nine Cubist collages said to be worth 40 million euros alone.
