Steve Wynn, the Las Vegas tycoon who is rapidly going blind, spent over $45 million in under 24 hours at the main Impressionist and Modern art auctions here, snaffling the top lots in both Christie’s and Sotheby’s sales on 6 and 7 May.
He started his spree at Sotheby’s with Renoir’s sun-dappled, rose-garlanded “Dans les roses,” 1882, a portrait of a pretty Parisienne in her garden, which her husband had rejected as being “too daring”.

Mr Wynn paid $17. 3 million (£10.78 million) for the {other} work {[a self portrait by Cézanne}, and at the end of the sale announced that both works had been bought for his art collection in Las Vegas. They will be displayed at his new casino, Le Rêve. It is rumoured that this is named after Picasso’s painting of the same name, which he is thought to have bought privately from the German collector Wolfgang Flottl. The price, say the same sources, was around $60 million.

...No trace of you, though, or your pink
nurslings; our fierce thirsts drove you
back out into fields whose hungers
you'd already fled, where if you became
some fox or coyote's scrap of protein...

{something I wish I'd had when I read it the first time}

"Like many people, I have no religion, and I am just sitting in a small boat drifting with the tide. I live in the doubts of my duty.... I think there is dignity in this, just to go on working.... Today we stand naked, defenseless, and more alone than at any time in history. We are waiting for something, perhaps another miracle, perhaps the Martians. Who knows?"
Federico Fellini (1920-1993), Italian movie director, quoted by Martin E. Marty in Varieties of Unbelief

whirling on ice you couldn't
stop on, I wondered how much you knew
in those seconds when no maneuvering
could save you, and whether the wide-eyed look
you'd turned towards me was on your face then:
