Real Estate Mogul Aby Rosen Says Four Season’s Picasso Is a Fake

FOUR-SEASONS-PICASO

On news that the iconic Four Seasons restaurant in New York is going to be renovated and that a few things, including a Picasso painting, are going to be moved around, real estate mogul Aby Rosen tells New Yorkers not to worry–the Picasso is a fake.

The so-called Picasso work, La Tricorne, is not the genuine article, according to Rosen, who told Vanity Fair that Picasso never worked directly on it, but it was cut to fit the space in the Seagram building.

“It was supposed to go somewhere else, ” insisted Rosen. “It ended up there because no one wanted to piss away the $50, 000 they paid for it.” Samuel Bronfman’s daughter, Phyllis Lambert, denied Rosen’s claim, and said it was a genuine Picasso.

Four Seasons may close for renovations, but it will re-open in 2016 to see higher rents. Rosen isn’t worried about what he considered the faux Picasso or the restaurant. “This isn’t poor guys running a not-for-profit. This is a $25 million grossing restaurant.” Four Seasons co-owner Julian Niccolini said he would be “delighted” to partner with Rosen. Alex von Bidder said New York would give a “cheer” (presumably not a Bronx cheer) if the three should partner up.”
