Steven Cohen, SAC Capital Advisors owner bought the painting of Pablo Picasso's "Le Rêve" for $ 155 million. The price is the highest ever in the history of the United States offered for a work of art. Steve Cohen is well known art collector in the world. In his collections can be found canvas of Van Gogh, Cezanne, Manet, de Kooning, Picasso, Cezanne, Warhol.
Cohen started to build his art collection around 2001. The newly purchased Picasso painting "Le Rêve" shows Marie-Therese Walter, who was the artist's lover, model and muse.
Already married, 45-year-old Picasso met Walter in 1927 on one of the streets of Paris when she was only 17 years old. Despite the significant difference in age, it was the greatest love of the artist, which lasted for the next decade, and that inspired him to create many wonderful sculptures and paintings.
If you haven't seen the movie about it yet, maybe it's time to have a look at it. Search for "Surviving Picasso" (1996).
