Ever since the Brody sale in 2010, when the famed collectors’ Picasso, Nude, Green Leaves and Bust set a then-record for the most expensive work at auction, there’s been speculation about the buyer. The painting was exhibited in London at the Tate Modern after the sale in 2011.
Yesterday, an Instagram post suggested the owner is Len Blavatnik whose holdings include Warner Music. (The post seems to be a photograph of an issue of Architectural Digest which has a spread on the London home of “the owner of #warnerrecords.)
Blavatnick is also an investor in the Faena development in Miami Beach where his Damien Hirst’s “Gone But Not Forgotten” is on display.
