Picasso's 1943 work Le Marin, which was valued at $70 million (about £52 million), was withdrawn from last night's auction at Christie's in NY after what the auction house described as an accident on Friday.
"After consultation with the consignor today, the painting has been withdrawn from Christie's sale to allow the restoration process to begin", the NY auction house said in a terse statement. One weird twist: The painting belongs to former casino mogul Steve Wynn, who previously had bad luck with a different Picasso painting.
"Two outside conservators have now been consulted and have made recommendations for the successful restoration of the painting", the auction house reports in the release.
"After consultation with the consignor today, the painting has been withdrawn from Christie's May 15 sale to allow the restoration process to begin", Christie's said in a statement, per ABC News. "No further information is available at this time".
