Aby J. Rosen, a New-York real estate mogul, co-founded RFR Holding LLP, which owns the Seagram Building housing the famous Four Seasons restaurant. The New York Landmarks Conservancy, headed by president Peg Breen, owns a 19-by-20-foot theater curtain, “Le Tricorne,” painted by Pablo Picasso. What do Mr. Rosen and Ms. Breen have to do with one another? The famed painting of Ms. Breen’s conservancy hangs on the wall of Mr. Rosen’s Four Seasons restaurant.
A legal battle has ensued between the two as Mr. Rosen wishes to take down the painting to make repairs on the wall while Ms. Breen claims such a move would damage a priceless Picasso.
