It’s funny but not-at-all-funny at the same time. Casino owner Steve Wynn was doing a presentation on his very famous Picasso painting, “Le RÃªve,” before it was auctioned and got a little carried away. The painting was expected to fetch around $140 million. But Steve has a eye disease affecting his peripheral vision, and was a little closer to the painting than he thought.
He made a gesture with his right hand, and put his elbow through it.
The restorer expects that when he’s “done with it, in six or eight weeks, you wonâ€™t be able to tell.”
