A stage curtain believed to be the biggest Pablo Picasso painting in the United States is moving to a museum after a dispute over whether it could stay in its longtime spot in the storied Four Seasons restaurant, the painting's owner announced last week.The 19-by-20-foot curtain, called "Le Tricorne," is being donated to the New-York Historical Society, where it's expected to go on display after some conservation work, painting owner the Landmarks Conservancy said. Although praised at $1.6 million in 2008, the painting isn't considered one of Picasso's greatest pieces but stands as a major example of his theatrical set work, experts say.The preservation group's concerns have been somewhat assuaged by the current plan, which involves carefully wrapping the painting on a huge roller and having conservators do any needed restoration work, Breen said. Rosen is paying for it all, said Breen, who wouldn't disclose the estimated cost.
