New York's storied Four Seasons eatery sued over plan to move Picasso painting amid repairs

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 9:48 AM EDT

For decades, New York's storied Four Seasons restaurant has harbored one of the city's more unusual artworks: the largest Pablo Picasso painting in the United States.

But a plan to move the painted stage curtain called "Le Tricorne" has touched off a spat as sharply drawn as the bullfight crowd the canvas depicts.

The building's owner says the 19-by-20-foot curtain has to be moved from the restaurant to make way for repairs to the wall behind it. The company's co-founder happens to be the state arts council chairman.

The nonprofit Landmarks Conservancy owns the curtain and is suing to stop the move. The conservancy says taking down the brittle work could destroy it.

The painting has hung in the Four Seasons since the power-lunch spot opened in 1959.
